A young Afghan woman bank clerk has disappeared from her job in Kabul along with more than $1 million.
An international arrest warrant has been issued for her at least nine other accomplices.
Shokofa Salehi, 22, worked in the money transfer division at the headquarters of Azizi Bank, a major lender in Kabul. Chief executive Inayatullah Fazli said she disappeared around two months ago, suspected of transferring $1.1 million (£700,000) out of the bank’s coffers to accounts of relatives.
It is thought she used fake documents under the name Samira to reach India after transferring the money. Her current whereabouts are unknown.
