Video: Afghans dismiss runoff vote

Afghans say they have few hopes for November's second round poll.

    In Afghanistan, preparations are under way for a runoff vote between Hamid Karzai, the incumbent president, and Abdullah Abdullah, his rival.

    The original poll was tainted by evidence of mass fraud and corruption and disrupted by threats and Taliban violence.
