Boom in Nepal's arms sales

The country's arms dealers are exploiting political instability to maximise sales.

    Arms dealers in Nepal are taking advantage of the country's tumultuous political scene, with smugglers bringing weapons through the border with India.

    Some of the guns are reportedly going to local politicians. A pistol costs $350, while a rifle costs just $50.
