A man has been arrested at Dhaka's airport for trying to smuggle 600g (1.3lbs) of gold in six bars hidden in his backside, foreign media reports.

A 100g (0.22lb) gold chain has also been seized. The gold is reportedly worth 3m taka (£26,000; $38,400).

Airports in Bangladesh are widely used by gold smugglers and detentions are common.

The man has confessed to smuggling but no further information has been released.

Most of the gold caught by Bangladeshi authorities are believed to be destined to India, one of the world's top importers of the metal, foreign media reports.
