Afghan version of The Office set in garbage ministry

A new Afghan television satire drawing on influence from the British comedy The Office goes to air for the first time on Thursday.

The show is being billed by its creators at Tolo TV as the country's first satirical drama and very few subject matters appear to be off limits.

Quentin Sommerville reports from Kabul.
