 Egypt 'safer' than UK and US, Gallup report


CAIRO 13 Jun (ANA) - Egypt has been ranked the safest country in Africa - coming higher than both the UK and US - according to a new poll.

The Gallup Global Law and Order report placed the North African country at 16 out of 135 countries on its annual list, which measures people’s sense of personal security and their personal experiences with crime and law enforcement.

It scored 88, placing it on the same level as countries like Denmark, Slovenia and China.

Crisis-hit Venezuela was ranked the most dangerous, with South Sudan considered the least safe country in Africa, just ahead of Afghanistan.

The East African nation is followed by Gabon, Liberia and South Africa, one of the continent's most popular tourist destinations.

Gallup’s questions revolve around confidence in local police, safety at night, cases of theft, robbery and assault.

Across sub-Saharan Africa, just 60% of people polled told Gallup they were confident in the local police force, rising to 68% across North Africa and the Middle East.

Meanwhile, Rwanda scored highest on the continent when it came to safety at night, with 88% of people saying they would be happy to walk about after dark.(ANA)
