Egypt ranked as the safest country in Africa
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.
