Panic grips Afghan bank customers

Nervous customers of Kabul Bank withdraw their savings amid fears of possible collapse.

    Hundreds of Afghans have been trying to withdraw money from the country's largest bank, amid concerns that it could collapse.

    The panic was sparked by reports that Kabul Bank has lent millions of dollars to members of the political elite, who used the money to make risky investments.
