Robber swallowed fake diamond
The diamond's owner alerted the police after he saw the man consume the precious stone
A Chinese man accused of swallowing a diamond worth $13,000 (£8,200) actually ingested a fake gem in what may have been a ruse to help the real thief escape, police in Sri Lanka say.
Police say the gem that he passed after he was given laxatives was a fake.
They believe the real diamond was stolen by an accomplice who fled the scene in the capital, Colombo.
