TANZANIAN BANKNOTE SHIPMENT GOES ASTRAY

Why go to the bother of counterfeiting paper money when you can just steal a shipment of brand-new notes from the printer? -Editor
Freshly-minted banknotes have reportedly gone missing at the Dar es Salaam International Airport after the shipment arrived aboard a Qatar Airways flight, local media reported on Friday.

The This Day report said that the shipment had started from Germany and arrived in Tanzania via a stopover in Doha of Qatar.

The newspaper quoted unidentified sources from Tanzania's central bank, Bank of Tanzania, as saying that the banknotes had been minted in Germany and had been all in the 10,000 Tanzanian shilling denominations.

The 10,000-shilling banknote is the largest denomination banknote now in circulation in the country.
