Afghanistan's rival presidential candidates have signed a deal to form a government of national unity.

The deal comes four months after disputed elections in which both Dr Abdullah Abdullah and Ashraf Ghani claimed victory and accused each other of electoral fraud.

US Secretary of State John Kerry has described the agreement as "an Afghan solution to an Afghan problem".
