Development answer to reducing global homicide rateListen /
Social development should be part of the solution to reducing the global homicide rate, according to a senior UN official.
A report by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) says that more than 430,000 people were murdered around the world in 2012
Almost half of those murders took place in Africa and the Americas.
Jean-Luc Lemahieu from UNODC is one of the authors of the report, the "Global Study on Homicide."
Daniel Dickinson asked him about the main findings.
