Have you had a look at the US State Department Travel Advisories?  

They identify countries that are in a mess for one reason or another,
and provide an overview of the current situation.  I'm sure all the
"seriously threatened" countries would be listed.

For instance, here's the write-up for Zimbabwe:



January 22, 2004 

This Travel Warning is being issued to remind Americans of the
political, economic and humanitarian crises in Zimbabwe . This
supersedes the Travel Warning of January 27, 2003 .

The Department of State warns U.S. citizens of the risks of travel to
Zimbabwe . Zimbabwe is in the midst of political, economic, and
humanitarian crises with serious implications for the security
situation in the country. All U.S. citizens in Zimbabwe are urged to
take those measures they deem appropriate to ensure their well being,
including consideration of departure from the country.

The Zimbabwean economy is in precipitous decline, with extremely high
rates of unemployment and inflation. The economic crisis has led to a
serious increase in crime. Zimbabwe is experiencing nationwide fuel
shortages that have hindered in-country travel.

Approximately half the population of Zimbabwe faces an urgent food
crisis and possible famine. The humanitarian crisis is expected to
worsen in coming months and may lead to unrest and possible
large-scale migration of Zimbabweans to urban or border areas, with
further disruption and an increase in crime and instability.

Commercial farms should be avoided at all times, especially those
occupied by settlers or so-called "war veterans," who are typically
young government supporters acting with impunity outside the law. In
November 2002, U.S. Embassy staff members were detained and one was
beaten by war veterans on a farm near Harare .

All Americans who travel to or reside in Zimbabwe despite this Warning
are urged to register with the U.S. Embassy in Harare located at 172
Herbert Chipeto Ave. The U.S. Embassy in Harare can be contacted by
phone at (263) 4-520-594/5.


Let me know if these are useful to your needs?
