Kabul Bank fraud 'profited elite'

Afghanistan's failed Kabul Bank was involved in a fraud that funnelled almost $900m into the pockets of a small number of the political elite, an independent auditors' report says.

One of President Hamid Karzai's brothers, Mahmoud, is said to be a beneficiary. He denies any wrongdoing.

Details of the audit were revealed in a leaked report seen by the New York Times newspaper.
