Newham more dangerous than Baghdad?

The Evening Standard has this article tonight saying that DHL doesn't deliver to some neighbourhoods of London, including parts of Newham, because it is considered too dangerous. Residents of these neighbourhoods are kindly requested to pick up their deliveries from the nearest DHL depot. They will deliver anywhere in Iraq or Cambodia though. In their defense, DHL day that this is because different security arrangements are in place depending on countries so Iraq for instance has more serious security arrangements that the UK. To the point where the UK arrangements are unable to deal with gangs of hooded teenagers.
