The BBC reported that

The Sigar report also notes that these figures include “ghost” security personnel.

This, it says, means that “more than $300 million a year was spent paying salaries to non-existent personnel in the Afghan security forces”.

Basically, I'm curious how may "ghost" soldiers that "$300 million a year" would pay for. So, what was the average pay of an Afghan soldier in the regime that fell this August?
