What Afghans think of the poll


Election observers in Afghanistan have said there was widespread voting fraud and intimidation during the presidential election on Thursday.

Stuffed ballot boxes, illiterate voters being told who to vote for and biased officials were cited by Afghanistan's Free and Fair Election Foundation.

But EU monitors said, despite widespread intimidation and violence, the vote was generally good and fair.

The BBC's Ian Pannell reports from Kabul on what Afghan people think about how the election went.
