An Afghan anti-corruption court has sentenced a government accountant to 15 years in prison for corruption.
Mohammad Noor, who worked for the Ministry of Religious Affairs, was arrested on arrival last year at Kabul airport carrying $350,000 (£240,000).
Prosecutors said it was a bribe and that he was carrying it for his boss, Sidik Chakari, who was then the minister for religious affairs.
Mr Noor denied the charge. Mr Chakari, a British citizen, is now in the UK.
Prosecutors have also charged him with corruption and are seeking his extradition.
