Liberia runs short of bank notes

MONROVIA, Nov 6 (NNN-AGENCIES) — Liberians are stuck in long queues at cash machines as many have run out of bank notes.

Customers trying to get money at bank counters have also complained they can’t get Liberian dollars.

The ministry of finance says there is not sufficient money in the vaults of commercial banks because people are keeping money at home – something observers say is motivated by a lack of confidence in the banks.

Liberia has had a problematic recent history with bank notes.
