(Newser) – A diamond smuggler is accused of the impressive, painful-sounding feat of swallowing 220 of the gems in an attempt to get them out of South Africa. The Lebanese man was arrested at the Johannesburg airport as he was waiting to fly to Dubai, the BBC reports. Scans of his body revealed $2.3 million worth of diamonds, and Reuters provides the answer to your burning question: "We used laxatives," says a police spokesman.
