AFTER THE WAR; No Electricity but Kuwait Reopens Its Banks
By DONATELLA LORCH, Special to The New York Times
Published: March 25, 1991

It still has no water and little electricity or food, but Kuwait revived its banking system today, introducing a new currency.

Banks reopened for the first time since Iraqi occupation forces shut them down in December. Thousands of people lined up to exchange their old Kuwaiti dinars for crisp new ones and to withdraw a limited amount of money.

Without electricity, the banks services were slow, limited to money exchange and withdrawal. There was no telex, no electronic money transfer and no telephones. The computers were unusable, so all transactions had to be entered by hand.

"It's like going back 20 years," said Mohammed al-Yahya, the manager of the Commercial Bank of Kuwait, the nation's second-largest bank. Seized Dinars Canceled

The Central Bank is canceling the value of Kuwaiti dinars that were seized from the Central Bank and put into circulation by the Iraqis. The invalid serial numbers were posted today in front of all banks in the city.

I guess about as much relevence as recipes and funny pictures that r put on here daily but I just thought it might be of some interest to someone new who hadn't followed the Kwd situation. It was today's date in 1991. Guess I'll just go back to being an observer

I read the OP a couple of times and I don't see where the poster ever made a connection to Iraq at all. What is the point of your post?
