Afghan Parliamentary Election 2010

YJI Senior Reporter Edrees Kakar, who lives and works in Kabul, Afghanistan, took these photos there on the day of the Afghan parliamentary election last week. Unfortunately because of a family health emergency, we were unable to post them until today, but they still give the flavor of the fervor of the race. Kakar also wrote a piece about the election, which will be added online tomorrow. We apologize for the delay, but hope readers will understand and find the photos and report by Kakar of interest. — Jackie Majerus, YJI
