Kabul Bank fraud: Sherkhan Farnood and Khalilullah Ferozi jailed

Two former chiefs of Afghanistan's Kabul Bank have been sentenced to five years in jail for the multi-million dollar fraud that almost led to its collapse in 2010.

Founder Sherkhan Farnood and ex-CEO Khalilullah Ferozi were found guilty of theft at a special court.

Revelations of massive corruption led to a run on the bank in 2010.

Foreign donors bailed it out fearing its failure could lead to the collapse of Afghanistan's fragile economy.
