  • [GUNFIRE]

  • SUROOSH ALVI: We're here in Lahore,

  • Pakistan, in the old city.

  • I'm here visiting family.

  • It's been about three years since I was in the country.

  • And in that time, the country has gone through insane

  • amounts of change--

  • truly full of deep contradictions.

  • On the one hand, you've got this progressive side of the

  • population.

  • They're organizing fashion weeks.

  • They're partying.

  • And you've got this liberal media explosion happening in

  • this country.

  • And they're operating uncensored by the government.

  • On the other side, you got the Taliban.

  • They've been infiltrating the entire country, attacking

  • police stations and government buildings in a

  • recent wave of violence.

  • It's now escalated into a full-fledged battle with the

  • Pakistani Army fighting the Taliban in the tribal areas

  • near the Afghan border.

  • We travelled to this area three years ago when we wanted

  • to visit a massive illegal arms market believed to be a

  • source of weapons for the Taliban.

  • It's been called the most dangerous place in the world

  • and is now basically closed outside of the journalists.

  • So I asked my mom to call her buddy.

  • He is the chief secretary of the Northwest Frontier

  • Province of Pakistan.

  • With his help, we got our own private militia.

  • And they made sure we wouldn't get kidnapped or killed.

  • SUROOSH ALVI: Naeem, who is our host, is part of the

  • Afridi tribe.

  • He is born and raised there, now works as a protocol

  • officer for the government.

  • He put them together for us.

  • He got us through, dealt with a huge amount of bureaucracy,

  • and got the militia to cover us as we

  • went through the market.

  • Is this loaded?

  • NAEEM AFRIDI: Yes, this is loaded, but they're locked.

  • SUROOSH ALVI: They locked it.

  • Where's the lock?

  • SUROOSH ALVI: It's the most historic pass in the history

  • of the world.

  • The Aryans came through.

  • The Mongols came through.

  • The British Army came through and got destroyed--

  • special place.

  • SUROOSH ALVI: Thanks, buddy.

  • [PARADE MUSIC]

  • SUROOSH ALVI: He's the founder of the heroin trade.

  • SUROOSH ALVI: The concept?

  • SUROOSH ALVI: Of what?

  • SUROOSH ALVI: It's a very special Italian hat.

  • NAEEM AFRIDI: I will try my best to--

  • SUROOSH ALVI: Oh god.

  • No.

  • After Khyber, we went into Darra.

  • That's where the arms market is.

  • So when you were explaining to the officials what we wanted

  • to do, the old man started laughing when you said we

  • wanted to shoot guns and maybe buy some guns.

  • I think he liked that idea.

  • SUROOSH ALVI: He liked that idea.

  • SUROOSH ALVI: He was laughed.

  • SUROOSH ALVI: This is definitely the largest illegal

  • arms market in the world.

  • There is another one in Pakistan.

  • It's not quite as big.

  • And the story is that during the '80s, the Soviet-Afghan

  • war was happening.

  • All the scrap metal from all the broken-down tanks and guns

  • they would find, they would bring it back over and then

  • replicate the firearms.

  • SUROOSH ALVI: So in the whole town, they're making 1,000

  • guns a day here.

  • And they've been doing that for 70 years.

  • That's a lot of guns.

  • So this guy is making 9-millimeter pistols with his

  • bare hands.

  • The guy who's making it is deaf.

  • It's a Mauser but says "Made as China

  • by Norinco." [GRUNTING]

  • SUROOSH ALVI: This is the cartridge.

  • He has no tongue.

  • 3,050 rupees?

  • We're hearing lots of guns being shot around us.

  • And they're just checking to make sure that the guns work.

  • They're doing it with live ammo.

  • What I'm wondering is, they shoot it up in the air, where

  • do the bullets fall?

  • SUROOSH ALVI: It's time we go gun shopping.

  • This is an Italian machine.

  • This is like a Kalashnikov?

  • MALE SPEAKER: Kalakov.

  • SUROOSH ALVI: Kalakov.

  • It says it's a Muzzelite.

  • I think we can do some damage with this.

  • The original Khyber rifle--

  • so in 1857, the British gave the Afghanis 10,000 of these.

  • I don't even know how to cock this thing.

  • Where do you put the bullet in?

  • [INTERPOSING VOICES]

  • SUROOSH ALVI: The musket?

  • The musket is where you put it in.

  • MALE SPEAKER: Nazi gun.

  • German.

  • SUROOSH ALVI: Germany.

  • World War II, Nazi gun--

  • pure evil in my hand.

  • MALE SPEAKER: Suroosh, now we are going into

  • the shooting area.

  • Yes?

  • Let's go.

  • SUROOSH ALVI: Bullet.

  • So we were wondering, were they following me?

  • MALE SPEAKER: They're not going far from us.

  • SUROOSH ALVI: If not, I'm going to keep it.

  • NAEEM AFRIDI: Yes, keep it.

  • SUROOSH ALVI: You got to be kidding.

  • This is the shooting area?

  • We just had lunch downstairs.

  • NAEEM AFRIDI: Yes.

  • SUROOSH ALVI: All right.

  • Let's do this.

  • I'm shooting the enemies in the hills.

  • I've never done this before.

  • It's a Kalashnikov.

  • And we're kind of nervous.

  • I see my target.

  • [GUNFIRE]

  • EDDY MORETTI: [SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

  • [GUNFIRE]

  • SUROOSH ALVI: America thought that by sending in troops to

  • Afghanistan and the Pakistani Army into the tribal areas,

  • they'd to be able to squash the Taliban uprising.

  • They were wrong.

  • The people we saw live in caves.

  • They work in insane conditions.

  • They have no tongues.

  • They make guns with their bare hands.

  • We're done.

  • We succeeded our mission.

  • We came to Darra.

  • And we bought guns.

  • We shot them.

  • We saw how it all happens.

  • If you come here, you got to make sure you look the part.

  • And you've got to have a guy like Naeem

  • to make it all happen.

  • SUROOSH ALVI: And one last thing--

  • NAEEM AFRIDI: Goodbye to the gun.

  • SUROOSH ALVI: --Pakistan Zindabad.

  • Three years ago, when we filmed in Darra, after we

  • left, the government basically shut it down.

  • They shut it down to outsiders and journalists because the

  • Pakistani Army was in there fighting the Taliban.

  • And right now, between the Pakistani Army and the US

  • troops on the border, the Taliban inside the tribal

  • areas, it's essentially a powder keg

  • that's ready to blow.

  • The military expert that we know, he described the

  • situation as the wickedest problem you

  • could possibly imagine.

  • [FOREIGN LANGUAGE].
