A new report by Transparency International says most countries have made “little to no progress” in tackling corruption in nearly a decade.
The Berlin-based nonprofit group ranks countries on a scale of zero to 100, with 100 being the least corrupt.
According to its report, more than two-thirds of the 180 countries had a score below 50.
Denmark and New Zealand were listed as the least corrupt countries, with both scoring 88. They were followed by Finland, Singapore, Sweden and Switzerland, with scores of 85.
The most corrupt countries were South Sudan and Somalia, with scores of 12 each, followed by Syria with a score of 14, and Yemen and Venezuela with scores of 15.
