Afghanistan to audit all votes cast in presidential election

KABUL — Afghanistan will conduct an audit of the 8 million votes cast in the recent presidential election, Secretary of State John Kerry announced Saturday, a deal he brokered to resolve a tense power struggle between the top two presidential candidates over allegations of widespread vote fraud.

The audit, which will begin immediately, will be supervised by international monitors and its results will be binding, according to the agreement announced by Kerry and endorsed by the rival candidates in Kabul, the capital.
