The bank’s cash transporters coming to the machine to for money supply were surprised when they found it was beyond their reach after the construction of the wall.

“The landlord in that area built the wall to prevent access by clients after he had a dispute with the bank,” 'Ajel' daily said in a report from the capital Riyadh.
