Biggest news miss: 'India's arms build-up'

world Updated: Nov 30, 2011 00:31 IST

India's "military build-up" though overlooked this year may make headlines in 2012, according to prestigious Foreign Policy magazine.

Pakistan's "secret war"— separatist movement in Baluchistan province — Euro, Mexico's drug war and US immigration crackdown are also among the events and trends that haven't got the attention they needed but may end up leading the news in the New Year, says the magazine.

India, it says, has not only matched China but has gone past it in some areas in investing in military hardware — a sign of growing militarisation of the region. India is the world's largest weapons importer, accounting for 9% of international arms transfers.
