Video: Taliban warns against runoff

Afghan presidential candidates begin muted campaign for election amid threats.



    The first official day of campaigning in Afghanistan's runoff presidential election has begun, and the two candidates are keeping a low-profile.

    The Taliban has called on Afghans to boycott the runoff, scheduled for November 7, and has warned of attacks on those who do not follow the boycott.
