5:14 am
a treatedy regulating the global arms trade came into effect. the arms trade treaty aims at keeping weapons out of the hands of war lords. human rights abusers and criminal organizations. 130 countries signed the treaty. 70 are yet to ratify it. the global trade in arms and ammunition is said to general 50 to 85 million arms a year. pakistan is a major weapon producer that has not signed the treaty. kamal hyder has more from the market, in peshawar, where gun sales boom. >> not long ago the tribes were walking around with automatic weapons, after a military offensive, there is now restriction on movement of local tribes with weapons.
5:15 am
they trade in weapons. it flourishes. it is meant for the local market. if you look around, you will find the end field rifle used by british soldiers during the first world war. it became a hot favourite with the drivers, because of the fact in this could shoot a target at a long range. after that, when the russians invaded afghanistan in 1979 we saw the ak-47 coming into the market for the first time. the deadly weapon wreaked havoc, and the police forces had to change their weapons in order to compete with the criminals that carry their weapons such as these. over the years the influx of n.a.t.o. forces meant that you can find weapons such as the m16, and you can buy rocket launchers, they will not be for display in the market.
5:16 am
importantly, pakistan's military is conducting a major operation, and, therefore most of the tribal areas are safe. we are here because of the local hospitality of the tribes. >> martin butcher is a policy adviser focussing on arms and conflict from oxfam international and joins us live from london. it's taken years for the treaty, years of hard work to bring it into effect. what do you hope it will accomplish. >> well, oxfam, as you say, worked hard on the streety for many years. we are hoping that as governments get control of the arms trade and stop arms getting into the illicit market, the harm will slow down. africa, for example, as well as deaths and injuries loses something like 18 billion a year
5:17 am
because of conflict fuelled by irresponsible weapons. there are those that said in order to get the treaty passed, language has been watered down. will it be effective without stronger reporting requirts or ammunition in the ban. >> the reporting requirements are satisfactory to us and governments have to report based on what they are doing to make the treaty work, and on the arms traded. we'll learn a lot of information that hasn't previously been available. that will help us. the more we foe aboutle league at trade, the harder for arms to get into illicit markets. who will enforce the treaty and
5:18 am
hold governments to keep act of where arms are going. costs have to put regulations to comply with the treaty into national law. they need to have good accounting for weapons held in their territory they need to have good control of arsenal. when weapons are shifted across the borders, it has to be done and be reported on. for the first time, for all of the countries that signed up for the treaty, we have 130, 60 have ratified, that means that we will have more information about the arms trade and there'll be a much greater obligation on governments to ensure that arms are held securely and
5:19 am
transported securely. so this should lead slowly but surely to significant improvement in the situation. >> martin butcher, advisor, focussing on arm. thank you for your time. thank you let's return to those reports that a palestinian has been killed by israeli fire in southern gaza. our correspondent imtiaz tyab is in bethlehem, and is joining us live from there now. imtiaz tyab, what more can you tell us? >> that's right, elizabeth. what we know is that an israeli military detail near southern gaza was supporting or supervising a group of israeli workers to help repair the fence down there. the barrier two separate israel and the gaza strip. we understand again, according to the military, that they come under what they describe as
5:20 am
sniper fire. we understand from the military, that that's where they responded with tank tire and air strikes. one palestinian was killed, several were injured in the response. we have unconfirmed reports that a soldier or military personal was injured, but the israeli military has not confirmed it for us. >> that's our correspondent joining us from bethlehem there. thank you. an airport baggage handler in the u.s. city of atlanta smuggled guns on passenger planes, to determine how a delta airlines employee could conspire. fbi officials say the pair smuggled dozens of weapons from atlanta into new york. the economy is growing at its
5:21 am
fastest pace in more than a decade between july and september. it grew by the annual rate. much of the buoyancy comes from consumer spending and investment. the number of jobs were created. employers hired 325,000, the biggest one month in three years. tom ackerman has more. >> reporter: an wall street an extra measure of cheer. what's triggered investors, a 5% annual rate jump, u.s. output from july to september. that increase unseen for more than a decade. it was several positive factors across the economy. conser sent highest point. giving a boost to retail spending. much of the cash provided by a steep drop in petrol prices,
5:22 am
equivalent to a cut to households. employment gapes were a factor. over the past four years we put more people back to work than all other economies combined. retailers are outpacing inflation. economists caution there's room for improvement on the jobs front. too many that want kids unable to find them. too many working part time but would prefer full-time work, and too many who have given up searching for a job, but would likely do so if the labour market were stronger. analysts warn that the oil price benefit is unlikely to be lasting while growth in military spending will be slowing. >> what we saw in the third quarter doesn't offset or undermine or reverse the long-term depressed condition of global capitalism in general or
5:23 am
its leader of the united states in particular. as the old year rings out numbers give americans reason to believe that things are looking up as regses between the u.s. and cuba warms up for the first time in half a century, cubans are hoping for better days ahead. farmers expect shifts to bring new infrastructure. this report from outside havana. >> reporter: the sun has barely rich off the horizon, on the family farm they are hard at work preparing to cultivate the land. being a farmer is difficult in cuba. and this man says the type of cows on the island produce less than half the milk of similar cows in the united states. he can't by them because of the
5:24 am
half century embargo. it means no access to farm equipment or tools. >> we have little technology to develop our form. >> reporter: it means farmers are improvising, something he hopes changes. now, if we need pesticides we have the power to ask for it. you can look around and see how much it might help. you spend time on the farm. he's cutting sugar gain, but with no proper trucks tore anyone to transport it. it is loaded into this. this is the same system that they have been using for generations, the same system for over 100 years. cuba being a socialist country, including farmers who want to
5:25 am
buy equipment abroad. the government says it's meant to prevent anyone having an unfair advantage, but the policy may need to be rethought. >> translation: this agreement with the u.s. is significant and an important leap forward. the government needs to do their part. >> reporter: for now, some optimism prevails, like another farmer who views a new relationship with the u.s. >> translation: you give me a piece of farm machine, i'll give you beans. we can change business now. >> back at the road, that's what they want as well. expecting the benefits of the u.s. benefit to reach the countryside as fast as anywhere else time for the weather with rob now. and an update on a severe storm hitting the south-eastern united states, rob. >> yes, they are still going on.

5:31 am
>> chief of the arab states unit at u.n.e.s.c.o., and an architect of conservation joins us via skype. u.n.e.s.c.o. saying the damage amounts to erasing collective humankind memories, portions of our history. tell us about the scale of destruction, and what it means? >> yes. you know, syria is really crowded of civilisation. it is part of ancient areas, and it has witnessed several cultural ef ox from the syrian to greek to roman to bissin tine. it's a credit of christianity. and muslim dynasties that are present and so on. syria is a rich country, and unfortunately since the
5:32 am
conflict, its cultural heritage has been devastated. especially when you talk about the historic center of aleppo, which is worth a heritage site. many sites used at military camps, illegally looted. many are completely devastated. >> both sides in the conflict used ancient forces as military bases. is there any way to stop them from making the ancient sides another casualty of this war? >> you know, u.n.e.s.c.o. has several conventions, international conventions for the protection of heritage in times of war, like the hague convention. by vrt u of the con -- virtue of the convention we call on syria to stop using sites as war zones. this is not working, of course, because war, unfortunately.

what we are doing, though, is now to work with the team of ministers in order to include heritage into negotiations for stopping the fight. so, yes, u.n.e.s.c.o. calls on all member states on the security council to include cultural heritage when talking about humanitarian aids and peace negotiations. >> it's not just fighting between the two sides, is it. there's pillaging illegal excavation. what is happening. what is happening to what's being taken out of these sites to the treasures, in fact. where are they ending up. you rightly said that it's not about bombardment some, and targeted explosions like we have seen in aleppo. it's about looting archeological sites of great importance, like
5:34 am
the site of eblab where some were invented. where there are important roman mosaics. it was devastated by illegal excavations. there is a big market of illegal trafficking of cultural objects stepping from the interior and going to the neighbouring countries to the international market. it's an illicit market that we are trying to limit by asking the neighbouring countries of syria to stop on the borders the illicit trafficking of cultural object. and including the cultural object that we know about in order to block the selling on the international market. this market is an illicit market, most of it. it has looted a big amount of artefacts from important heritage sites, and the black
5:35 am
markets - we don't know a lot, but we know that the artefacts are sold in asia, in the gulf states, america, europe and elsewhere. this is a very important loss. >> chief of the arab states unit at u.n.e.s.c.o. joining us there via skype, thank you for your time. appreciate it, thank you let's return to another of our top stories. now to iraq, where 38 have been killed in a suicide bombing outside a military base in southern baghdad. we are joined by a political analyst. we have been able to reach him by phone in baghdad. good to have you with us. if i can start which acting what more information you have about this attack. >> well, this is something very, very rare, this area. nevertheless, they were considered one of the sunni
