Photojournal: Afghan family's voting day

Dr Farida Momand is a well-known doctor at a Kabul hospital. She is a candidate for parliament.

She woke up at the crack of dawn with her husband to prepare for a busy day. "I am a voter and a candidate. So that is work for me," she says.

But first, the couple say their prayers.

"It's a very important day for all of us. If I win, I will contribute to [the reconstruction]," she says.
