On Saturday, Voting is underway during the presidential election in Afghanistan, in a context of increased security and threats from insurgents.
More than 70,000 security forces have been deployed across the country to fight against Taliban militants who have vowed to target the polling stations.
The vote, which has been postponed twice, comes after the collapse of peace talks between the Taliban and the United States earlier this month.
The two main candidates are the incumbent, Ashraf Ghani, and chief executive, Abdullah Abdullah.
Shortly after voting began, there was an explosion near a polling station in the southern city of Kandahar, which injured at least 16 people.
“Voting has begun all over the country, and we are glad the people are already in big lines at polling centres waiting to cast their votes.” said Independent Election Commission spokesman
