A Thomson Reuters Foundation survey has listed the top 10 most dangerous places in the world to be a woman. A similar poll was conducted seven years ago and a new survey came out on Tuesday to see if anything had changed. What are the world's most dangerous places to be female?

1. India

India was ranked as the world's most dangerous country for women. The poll said that was due to the high risk of sexual violence, which was higher than in any other country and also women being forced into slave labour.

In 2011, when a similar poll was last conducted, India came fourth behind Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Pakistan.

This year, India also ranked the highest for attacks related to cultural tradition, which include acid attacks, female genital mutilation, as well as child marriage.

Government data showed that four cases of rape were reported every hour between 2007 and 2016.

The experts that Reuters spoke to said data showed that not enough was being done to tackle dangers women face. It comes five years after public outcry following the rape and murder of a student on a bus in Delhi, which made violence against women a national priority.

While Afghanistan ranked seventh-worst in the world for sexual violence, the survey found that Afghanistan had the world's worst healthcare for women. The country also ranked worst in the world for non-sexual violence.

Afghanistan's Public Health Minister said the deteriorating security situation was making life difficult for women. Large parts of the country are still under the control of Taliban fighters after nearly 17 years of war.

The country now in its seventh year of civil war, ranked as the joint third-worst country in the world for sexual violence, along with the USA

That violence includes rape as a weapon of war. It also came in second place behind Afghanistan for non-sexual violence, which includes conflict-related violence and domestic, physical and mental abuse.

Maria Al Abdeh, executive director of Women Now For Development said: "There is sexual violence by government forces. Domestic violence and child marriage are increasing and more women are dying in childbirth. The tragedy is nowhere near an end."

While Somalia came in 10th for sexual violence, it ranked highly and third worst for forms of retribution as cultural traditions. That includes stoning, child marriage and acid attacks as a form of punishment.

Women in Somalia have suffered from over two decades of war that has fuelled a culture of violence and weakened institutions.

While sexual violence against women in Saudi Arabia was low, discrimination was second highest in the world. That included limited fundamental rights, such as job discrimination, an ability to make a livelihood and a lack of access to education.

Dolores sure seemed to think so

He's had it coming for a long time now, but Teddy Flood finally appeared to get bumped off in Westworld season 2 episode 9.

A bullet to the temple would be anopen and shut case in most TV shows, but not Westworld , so let's break down exactly what happened.

Earlier in the season, Dolores forcibly dialled up Teddy's attributes to make him tough enough to withstand her/their mission, removing his compassion and ramping up his aggression.

At first, he seemed fine with this, but that changed in episode 9, the hint coming when he held fire and let one member of Ghost Nation escape.

In the final scene at an outpost, he vented at Dolores for manipulating his personality, telling her "you changed me, made me into a monster.

"What's the use of surviving if I become just as bad as them? I understand now, how this will end, where you will lead us."

As he told her "I never wanted to leave your side...Which is why this is so hard," it seemed as though Teddy was gearing up to kill Dolores, removing his pistol from its holster.

"You don't wanna hurt me, Teddy," she threatened, to which he replied: "No, No I could never hurt you,Dolores. I'll protect you until the day I die.

"I'm sorry, I can't protect you anymore," he concluded, before putting his own gun to his head and pulling the trigger.

Lying on the floor, sanguine liquid spilling from his head, it seemed as though he had committed suicide, not being able to go on any longer as a killing machine and wanting no part in Dolores' plan for world domination.

Dolores sure seemed to think so:

But this is Westworld , and forhosts there is no such thing as death, at least as we know it,onlycomplete destruction or just being decommissioned.

This is far from the first time Teddy has taken a bullet and probably not the first time one's landed in his head.

Russian air strikes also pummel opposition-held neighbourhoods, as well as a military base under rebel control.

Nearly a week into the offensive, at least 29 civilians are dead, according to the Observatory, while the United Nations says some 45,000 people have fled.

- Assault on Daraa city -

On June 26, the Syrian army launches an assault on Daraa city, targeting several neighbourhoods with air raids and artillery fire.

In New York on June 27, several Western members of the UN Security Council call on Moscow to halt the offensive and "uphold its commitments" in southern Syria, where Russia agreed a ceasefire a year before.

The next day is the bloodiest since the start of the assault. A barrage of Russian air strikes kills at least 25 civilians, mostly in the town of Al-Mseifra.

The United Nations announces it has halted cross-border convoys carrying aid from Jordan into southern Syria over security concerns.

- Deals and 'divisions' -

On June 30, eight battered rebel-held towns in the province return to regime control under Russian-brokered deals.

With these capitulations, regime forces double their territorial control in Daraa to around 60 percent since the offensive began.

Rebels and local officials, meanwhile, hold talks with Russia over a regime takeover of the rest of the province.

But on July 2, the civilian part of the opposition's delegation withdraws from the talks.

The Observatory says there are "divisions among rebel groups" over whether to agree to the terms proposed by Russia.

On July 4, rebels say in an online statement the talks have failed "after they insisted on the surrender of heavy weapons" in one go.

According to the United Nations, between 270,000 and 330,000 Syrians have fled violence in the province since June 19.
