The murder rate in Venezuela climbed to 82 per every 100,000 inhabitants, thus turning the country in one of the most violent countries worldwide, said non-governmental organization Venezuelan Observatory of Violence (OVV) in a report on Monday.

The OVV estimated that 2014 will end with 24,980 violent deaths. According to the study, the murder rate will hit 82 per every 100,000 inhabitants at the end of the year -an increase compared to 2013, when the rate was 79 homicides per every 100,000 people, AP reported.

That is twenty times the US rate in a country the size & population of Texas.  In fact Texas declares a total of 1,151 murders for 2013 or 4.4 per 100,000 people.
