KABUL: Multiple explosions rocked polling centres across Kabul on Saturday, as voters cast their ballots in long-delayed legislative elections. Voters were seen fleeing a school in the north of the Afghan capital after a blast, an AFP correspondent said, with witnesses reporting explosions at other polling centres. Taliban militants have issued a series of statements telling people not to take part in what they consider a foreign-imposed process and warning election centers may be attacked. Election authorities originally planned 7,355 polling centers but only 5,100 will be able to open due to security concerns, according to the Independent Election Commission, overseeing the vote. But many fear the untried technology, which was still being distributed to provincial voting centers as recently as Thursday, will add to the confusion without eliminating fraud.
