Afghan central bank sees Islamic banking law enacted in 2011

Afghanistan's central bank expects an Islamic banking law to be enacted by September, drawing billions in deposits from citizens wary of the conventional banking system.
The central bank's sharia board will meet Sunday to finalize the law.
Of 17 banks in Afghanistan, six have Islamic banking windows. The central bank hopes to approve the creation of fully fledged Islamic banks after the law is passed.
