NBCNEWS/COLOMBO, Sri Lanka -- Sri Lankan police arrested a Chinese tourist
suspected of swallowing a diamond worth $13,600 on Wednesday at the
island nation's biggest international gem and jewelry exhibition.
Cheng, 32, is believed to have swallowed the diamond as he inspected it
at the exhibition, attended by buyers from China, Hong Kong, Thailand,
India and Europe, police said.
"His intention was to steal it," police spokesman Ajith Rohana told Reuters. "The x-ray shows the diamond is in his throat."
The Associated Press reported that the diamond was 1.5 carats.
Christopher Wijekoon, owner of the exhibition stall, said Chow had
tried to switch the original diamond with a synthetic one. click here to read more
