There were 3,111 civilians murdered in the city of Juarez in 2010 and 2,421 in the entire country of Afghanistan.

On a per capita basis, a civilian was 30 times more likely to be murdered last year in Juarez, where there are 1,328,017 inhabitants according toMexico’s 2010 census [2], than in Afghanistan, where there are 29,121,286 people according to the CIA World Factbook [3].
