North Korea is one of the world’s riskiest countries, according to London-based risk management consulting firm, Aon Plc.

North Korea topped the ranking, followed respectively by Afghanistan, Chad, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti, Iran, Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Venezuela, Yemen and Zimbabwe.

While few people travel to or do business with these countries, they are the political and economic hotbeds where people can be murdered or killed in a war, or threaten to do the same to others far away.
