Fears of US-Taliban talks disrupting Afghanistan election

Amid US-Taliban talks the group has increased its attacks, calling the upcoming elections a 'sham'.

    Afghanistan is heading to polls to elect a new president next month, with incumbent President Ashraf Ghani in the lead.

    But Afghans have voiced little enthusiasm for the vote, as the current talks between the United States and the Taliban threaten to overshadow the elections.
