Investigation reveals role of amateurs in China's military buildup

The latest entry in Reuters' "Breakout" series focused on China's military buildup reveals that the US government has more than 350 active military-technology smuggling cases linked to China, up by more than 50 percent since 2010. The report details how China is recruiting amateurs to buy weapons and significantly complicates U.S. efforts to stop the flow of American armaments to China. The report includes an unprecedented interview with one convicted arms trafficker and details of the secret FBI recordings in his case.
