The World Bank has approved financing worth more than 500 million dollars for Afghanistan to support a string of projects to boost the economy, help improve service delivery in five cities and support Afghan refugees sent back from Pakistan.

The bank said the grant, including donor money, worth some 520 million dollars would help the Afghan government at a time of uncertainty.

The World Bank said in a statement that the package will help Afghanistan with refugees, expand private-sector opportunities for the poor, boost the development of five cities and build rural roads.
