Global murder rates have declined slightly, but remain very high in the Americas and parts of Africa, according to a new U.N. study released Thursday, April 10, 2014. That comes as no news to the city of San Pedro Sula, long considered the most violent city in Honduras, the country that has the highest murder rate in the world. (AP Photo/Esteban Felix, File)
