'Surge' in weapons sales to Syria

Reported increase in arms being smuggled into country from neighbouring states following unrest.

    Arms exports to Syria from neighbouring states are reportedly on the rise since the unrest in the country began in March. 

    Lebanon and Syria share an often porous border and some experts say that not all the arms being smuggled across it are for self-defence.
