Malcolm Stanley JONES, British, died in RS Mart PP.

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

I am just saying that most barang death are self inflicted, some are murder. Nothing to get too excited about, as some can't wait for a body count. I have lived in places with the highest murder rate per capita, those numbers were an impressive 40 fold. No tourism, no expats and no war. There I did check my 6 o'clock often. No need here in Asia apart from the Phil's. I did not suggest that the OP deceased died of drugs.
So which one is it?

just opened the link, I was only referring to murder per capita. The US and Europe are pretty safe that way.

Right, per capita, the Central American countries are pretty high up there. Honduras has always been sketchy, spent six months there in '99 on the islands diving and traveling the mainland, just the drug death murder count was around 4000 per year iirc, but the blow was still dirt cheap. All in all I spent 2 or so years travelling in CAm countries, was fun at the time cause I was near fluent in Spanish back then, but having just visited a couple countries there earlier this year, I could never live there i think. People are pretty outgoing relative to Asia, but the 'macho attitude' is annoying! I do have a few friends that live in Guatemala worry free, but they're just surf bums with some small properties on the Pacific.
Drug and organised crime gangs are far more prevalent there.

Roatan and Utila, beautiful. The smaller the island the safer they are usually. 2012 Honduras was crowned to be #1 world wide death per capita.Don t think anyone beat them yet. Mid nineties it still was pretty safe. Even El Salvador was lots better.I would not normally have come to Asia, but once I had stayed for a while I got used to a few things and more and more began to realize how safe and relaxed one can be there. 15 years of warzones also made me appreciate this.

Yeah, you do have to appreciate the relative safety of Asian countries as a whole, slight exception to the Philipinnes and S. Thai. Then again shit can hit the fan pretty quick anywhere if you're looking for it, Asia or the Americas!
