Three Afghan policemen guarding a bank turned robbers, stealing more than £140,000 from a branch in the east of the country, an official said yesterday.

One of the rogue officers is on the run after his two accomplices were caught following Friday’s heist. Most of the 12 million afghanis (£140,237) looted from a branch of state-owned Afghanistan Bank in Nuristan province had been recovered.
