Afghan elections marred by more deadly violence

The second day of voting in the parliamentary elections has been marred by more violence with at least 170 people killed or injured across the country.

Millions of people defied threats by the Taliban as well as a series of technical problems with voting machines to cast their ballot in elections that are already three years overdue. Symeon Brown has more.
