Disputed Afghan election to be recounted in full

After two days of intense talks between Kerry, Abdullah Abdullah and Ashraf Ghani, all parties agreed that the best way out of the acrimonious and protracted deadlock was to delay the inauguration and recount all the ballots from scratch. #facebook #United States #World Cup #Brazil #France #Afghanistan #Russia #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #Mexico
