World Bank halts aid to Afghanistan

The World Bank has halted funding for projects in Afghanistan after the Taliban seized control of the country.

It cited concerns over how the Taliban’s takeover would impact “the country’s development prospects, especially for women”.

The move comes just days after the International Monetary Fund (IMF) suspended payments to Afghanistan.

The Biden administration has also frozen the assets of Afghanistan’s central bank that are held in the US.
