Currently, the Somalia is a leading country in Africa in terms of crime. It comprises a gang of pirates who work in the coastal areas with a mission of attacking foreign ships, kidnapping people, as well as demanding huge amounts of money as ransom for their release. In addition to pirates on the coastal waters, most of its clans have been on a war for more than two decades. In short, the list of crimes in Somalia is actually an endless list. Army militants are also not left out in periodical crime incidents where they rob and kidnap kids and adults to ask for ransom from their families. Many of the most wanted terrorists come from Somalia. This country is not safe for family vacations or business trips.
