The difference is usually described by the organisation of the killing. Individuals or small groups usually commit homicide, whereas the killing in armed conflict is usually committed by more or less cohesive groups of up to several hundred members. Two main sources of data are presented: criminal justice (law enforcement) measures (this series), supplemented by data from national statistical agencies, and measures from public health sources (see other intentional homicide series). These various sources measure slightly different phenomena and are therefore unlikely to provide identical numbers."

You should get more recent statistics... if you look at the crime rates in Colombia over the last 7 years you will see that murders, kidnappings and overall crime has been drastically reduced. If you want to be considered a serious source of information, you should update your sources more frequently.

Mr. Baron,

Sorry to say that your website has a 1988 posting date with no statistics at all. It does however explain how the country came to be.

I was looking for crime data for years 2003-2007.
