An audit of votes from Afghanistan's disputed presidential election has restarted without observers from the camps of either candidate.

Candidate Abdullah Abdullah had withdrawn his observers after raising concerns over fraud.

The team sent by his rival, Ashraf Ghani, said it pulled out after having been asked to do so by the UN.

Both Mr Abdullah and Mr Ghani have claimed victory in June's poll and both have alleged widespread fraud.

David Loyn reports.
