KABUL, Afghanistan: Afghanistan's audit of votes cast in June's presidential election resumed Sunday without the backing of Abdullah Abdullah, one of the two candidates, officials said, as the fraud-tainted poll was pitched into further uncertainty.

"The commission waited yesterday and today, but we are half through the day and Dr. Abdullah's observers are not here," Noor Mohammad Noor, the Independent Election Commission (IEC) spokesman, told reporters.

"We have decided to continue the process without any further interruptions."
