10 Cities That Have Fallen Into The Hands Of Criminal Gangs

10. Pristina

The capital of Kosovo, which only declared itself an independent country in 2008 after years of ethnic conflict between Serbs and Albanians, Pristina is not a pleasant place to live. Thousands have been leaving the city to search for a better life in other European countries. Political power in Kosovo is held by forces with ties to the Kosovo Liberation Army, a militia that fought against Serbia and which is notorious for its ties to organized crime, including people smuggling and the illegal organs trade. The dominance of criminal elements has proved disastrous for the population, who lack some of the most basic social necessities of life and face extremely high unemployment rates.
