Who Wants To Be A Millionare? is to have its own version in Afghanistan. At the the moment, one million Afghanis is worth around 11,690. However, the average annual income in the country is less than 200, so it is quite a lot of cash.

Story from the Daily Telegraph


Haven't the Afghans suffered enough without that as well?

Afghanistan always did have an interesting relationship with the UK. Because it was never colonised UK customs never acquired the stigma that they did in India, for example. I've even seen a picture of one Afghan prince dressed in Highland costume.[

I did once see an Afghan hound that was wearing a tartan collar. Does that count?

Actually, the people of Afghanistan are Afghans. 'Afghani' is the name of the currency.
