Long queues as Afghan voters defy election day attacks, delays

Long queues as Afghan voters defy election day attacks, delaysA suicide bomber killed 15 people in Kabul, the most serious of a series of smaller-scale attacks that caused dozens of casualties across the country but did not deter voters who endured long queues to cast their ballot. “Today the people gave an unanswerable response to the enemies of Afghanistan,” government spokesman Haroon Chakansuri told reporters. Voting should have been over by the time the suicide bomber struck a polling station in the north of Kabul, killing 10 civilians and five police, but polling stations were kept open longer than normal to cope with large numbers of people who had been unable to cast ballots.
