    Taliban seize $12.4 million from former top Afghan officials – By Reuters (MSN) / Sept 15 2021

    LONDON (Reuters) – Afghanistan’s Taliban-controlled central bank said it had seized nearly $12.4 million in cash and gold from former top government officials on Wednesday, including former vice president Amrullah Saleh.

    In a statement, the central bank said the money and gold had been kept in officials’ houses, although it did not yet know for what purpose.

    Saleh’s whereabouts are unknown. He has vowed to resist the Taliban, who stormed to power a month ago, and last week a family member said the Taliban had executed his brother Rohullah Azizi.
