A former minister of public works in Argentina has been arrested after he was allegedly seen trying to hide millions of dollars in cash in a monastery.

Officials say the police were called after nuns working at the religious community near Buenos Aires saw a man throw plastic bags over a wall.

Police then discovered wads of cash in several currencies as well as watches in packages inside the bags.

Local media say around $7m were found in dollars, yen, euros and other currencies.

Jose Lopez was initially detained and charged for illegal possession of a .22 calibre rifle.
