The main challenger in Afghanistan's presidential election says there was widespread fraud in Thursday's vote.
Former Foreign Minister Abdullah Abdullah said Sunday that ballots marked for President Hamid Karzai are arriving from districts where voting did not occur. He also alleged that voter turnout in areas where only 10 percent of voters cast ballots is being reported as high as 40 percent.
The Karzai campaign has denied the allegations, and accuses the Abdullah campaign of fraud.
The country's Electoral Complaints Commission says it has received 225 claims of fraud, including charges of ballot stuffing and voter intimidation.
The Independent Election Commission, which counts the votes. says the law prevents the release of official results until all the complaints have been adjudicated. It said it will begin releasing partial results Tuesday.
