Protesters gathered in the Afghan capital Saturday in support of presidential candidate Abdullah Abdullah's accusation of vote fraud, and his call for the organizers to stop counting the ballots from the run-off election held a week ago.Abdullah says he no longer trusts the electoral bodies and blames them and interference by President Hamid Karzai for mass fraud. He wants the electoral bodies to halt counting votes and has invited the United Nations to intervene. Karzai late on Friday -- to the dismay of diplomats who want the electoral bodies to be respected and the election process to completed -- issued a statement supporting Abdullah's call for the United Nations to intervene in the election.
