Afghans brave Taliban to vote in parliamentary election

Afghans have voted in a key parliamentary election, with turnout estimated at about 40%, although there have been a number of Taliban attacks.

Six security force members were killed in a Taliban attack in the north, and at least five people were killed in other attacks across the country.

There have also been some reports of fraud, including the washing off of supposedly indelible voting ink.
