Calls to annul Afghan polls grow

Many candidates are taking to the streets to express their dissatisfaction with the September vote.


    Dissatisfaction is mounting in Afghanistan over the parliamentary elections held in September.

    Many candidates who took part claim there was widespread fraud and vote-rigging. And as Al Jazeera's Sue Turton reports from Kabul, the Afghan capital, they are taking to the streets to make their voices heard.

    The calls come against a backdrop of continued violence in the country. In the latest attack, five civilians died after their vehicle hit a landmine in Helmand province on Sunday.

    Officials said seven others were injured in the blast, including two children. The injured were being treated in hospital.
