Border and customs officials in Kyrgyzstan have discovered a makeshift underwater pipeline, which they say is being used to smuggle alcohol into the country from neighbouring Kazakhstan.

The pipeline was discovered on the bed of the river Chu, which forms the border between the two countries.

They suspect thousands of litres of pure spirit have passed through it.

It is unclear how officials made the discovery, but a search is now on for the smugglers behind the pipeline.

Local media has reported that the pipeline was found just a few kilometres from a border checkpoint.
