Elections in Afghanistan, between bombs and closed seats, the turnout is low: "Demotivated but above all scared voters" KABUL - In the end there was no bloodshed openly threatened by the Taliban yesterday. The Ministry of the Interior reports the unofficial figure of 5 dead and forty injured throughout the election day. In the last hours, however, other unofficial data have appeared for which the dead could even be up to twenty. And the most numerous attacks. Still little, considering that the daily average of deaths from shootings and attacks is now around a hundred. But fear and consequent general abstentionism have characterized the fourth Afghan presidential elections since the fall of the Mullah Omar regime in 2001.
