Saudi customs have thwarted two attempts to smuggle four kilogrammes of gold jewellery via King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh.
The contraband, worth more than $160,000 as per the latest price of gold, was found on two passengers, both of whom had hidden the jewellery in their underwear.
The officers searched two passengers on arriving at the airport and discovered the jewellery which was hidden in their underwear, reported Alriyadh.
Customs director-general Sultan Al-Fuhaid said the two traffickers would face legal action.
Under the Saudi customs law, passengers who are travelling abroad or arriving to the country have to declare cash or jewellery valued at more than SR60,000 (approximately $15,990).
