Saudi customs men on King Fahd causeway linking the Gulf Kingdom with neighbouring Bahrain, arrested a local man trying to smuggle liquor in his underwear.

The Saudi man was returning from Bahrain when he was stopped by the customs and ordered to step out of his car.

Customs men searching him found 14 bottles of liquor hidden under his dishdasha (grown) and tied around his body, according to 'Sabq' newspaper.

Alcohol is strictly banned in conservative Saudi Arabia, where liquor smugglers are punished with long jail terms.
