Millions of Afghans voted Thursday in their second-ever direct presidential vote, despite a series of attacks by the Taliban leading up to the election.
A suicide bombing in Kabul killed at least 10 people Tuesday, just two days before the Afghanistan's presidential vote. ITN presents a pair of reports on efforts to secure the vote.
Afghan President Hamid Karzai is hoping to win a second five-year term in Thursday's elections, while raucous rallies drew thousands of supporters for the main opposition candidates in the days leading up to the vote.
With Afghanistan's second presidential election just days away, U.S., NATO, and Afghan forces are racing to secure voting locations from Taliban militants who have vowed to target anyone participating in the Aug. 20 contest.
