'Taliban chopped my finger off for voting'

More than 10 men have had parts of their fingers chopped off by Taliban insurgents after voting in Sunday's election.

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.
