Afghan election: 'Taliban chopped my finger off"

15 June 2014 Last updated at 19:36 BST

Election officials in Afghanistan have condemned the mutilation of nearly a dozen elderly men that were injured for taking part in Saturday's election.

The 11 elders, from a village in the west of the country, were kidnapped by Taliban insurgents and had parts of their fingers chopped off as a warning to others who cast their vote in Saturday's presidential run-off.

Karen Allen reports from Kabul.
