HELSINKI: Shares in Nordea, the Nordic region's biggest bank, tumbled more than 5 percent on Monday after Finnish public broadcaster Yle announced it would air a program later in the day containing allegations of money-laundering through the bank.

Yle said a large data leak showed that hundreds of millions of euros from suspicious sources had moved through Nordea, without giving any specific details.
