Payoff claims ground Kabul to a halt

Afghans say system of governance breeds a culture of corruption at every turn in capital Kabul.

    NATO has invested billions of dollars to build a trusted police force in Afghanistan.

    But as the coalition prepares to hand over security to local authorities, widespread corruption is becoming a major concern.

    The problem is affecting everything from petty theft to parking. But Afghan officials are denying the allegations. 

    Al Jazeera's Sue Turton reports from Kabul.
