Liberia missing cash: 23 people banned for travelling outside

By Mutala Yakubu

A court in Liberia has banned 23 more people from travelling abroad following the disappearance of more than $100m (£76m) worth of freshly printed banknotes.

All of them are employees of the Central Bank.

The authorities are investigating what happened to two shipping containers full of $16bn Liberian dollars in new banknotes which were brought into the country last year.

They were printed abroad and destined for the Central Bank.
