A total of 932 bullet diamonds were discovered shoved up the bum of a smuggling suspect.
Customs officers arrested an Indian man known by the initials IJHM after his plane from Bangkok in Thailand landed on the Indonesian island of Bali at the Ngurah Rai International Airport.
X-rays then reportedly showed that seven plastic bags containing the precious stones had been pushed into a condom, which the 48-year-old man had been carrying around in his anus.

The total weight of the diamonds was 40.73 carats or just over 8g.
Imran Yusuf, a spokesman for the Badung Prosecutors’ Office, said that IJHM is now under his custody whilst awaiting trial.
The defendant – an accountant – is understood to have told authorities that his boss in Bangkok ordered him to smuggle the diamonds into Bali and pass them on to an unknown individual, who would then sell them.
If found guilty of committing a smuggling crime, IJHM could face a maximum prison sentence of 18 years.
The latest alleged anus-smuggling attempt comes after a 51-year-old Australian man also attempted to import drugs into Bali by stuffing them into a condom that he then inserted into his rectal cavity.

Identified only by his initials JEF, the diving instructor allegedly bought packages of crystal meth and heroin in Vietnam before traveling to Bali in September.
After customs officials at Ngurah Rai International Airport suspected JEF was under the influence of drugs, he then rejected a body search.
But the Bali chapter of the National Narcotics Agency were then drafted in and they exercised their authority to search JEF and found 8.09g of heroin and 0.34g of methamphetamine in the condom that they had extracted from his backside.
BNNP Bali Chief of Enforcement Putu Agus Arjaya was quoted as saying at the time: "He bought these in Vietnam, which he visited three times since May."
