inner-city gehennas
varoşlar


Explanation:
inner-city --> kenar mahalle
inner-city Gehennas --> ise tekin olmayan kenar mahalleler (gecekondu mahalleleri) olarak adlandırılabilir.

Shanty towns olarak da belirtilebilen (Shanty towns usually have a high rates of crime, suicide,drug use and disease. bkz. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shanty_towns#Dangers ) ifadenin, Türkçe'deki en yakın anlamlı karşılığı "varoşlar" kullanımı gibi görünüyor bana.
