Afghan election: Counting begins in thousands of centres

Seven million Afghans out of an estimated eligible 12 million voted in the election for a new president, the country's electoral commission says.

It is the strife-torn nation's first transfer of power via the ballot box.

There were reports of ballot paper shortages and sporadic violence from across the country.
