UK: Arrest of gun dealer Gary Hyde highlights need for an ATT

British arms dealer Gary Hyde was arrested last month in the US charged with conspiring to illegally export almost 6,000 Chinese-produced AK-47 magazines to the US in breach of an American embargo. He is also under investigation in the UK , for his alleged involvement in a case relating to the sale of 40,000 AK-47s. Oliver Sprague of Amnesty International UK said, "It's a deeply alarming case that demonstrates yet again why arms brokering, small arms and ammunition trafficking must be at the heart of efforts to secure a new global Arms Trade Treaty".
