Customs officials said the cans, which were part of a consignment labelled ‘soft drinks’, arrived at the Al Batha border crossing via truck.

Footage shows a worker inspecting one of the cases before slicing its plastic wrapping open with a knife.

In a statement, customs officials say they intercepted 48,000 cans of beer moving through the al-Batha border crossing with the United Arab Emirates.

Drinking or possessing alcohol is a criminal offense in the ultra-conservative Sunni kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
