Afghanistan election: Young Afghans embrace polls

People in Afghanistan go to the polls on Saturday for only the second parliamentary elections since the fall of the Taliban in 2001.

A sizeable number of the 2,500 candidates are young Afghans, apparently not put off by threats from the Taliban of punishment for those who vote.

Lyse Doucet reports from Kabul.
