Hamid Karzai, Afghanistan's president, has been campaigning in the capital Kabul, urging crowds to come out and vote, despite a spate of violence in the last 24 hours.

The country goes to the polls in seven days and while 42 candidates are on the ballot paper, Karzai is expected to win. But one candidate, Abdullah Abdullah, is hoping to challenge him all the way.
