#1. Baghdad, Iraq
4 of 4
Although Baghdad is technically a war zone, civilians do sometimes find themselves in the city on business. Authorities strongly advise that any non-military personnel in the city be accompanied by a bodyguard. Terrorist and insurgent groups frequently target Westerners as they continue to conduct large-scale attacks in the city. Visitors who aren’t killed in an explosion or gunfight constantly face the threat of kidnapping, carjacking, and petty theft. Americans are especially endangered in the city, as Iraqis are known to deny them accommodations for fear of being targeted by insurgents.
