KABUL (Reuters) - The United Nations on Saturday urged Afghan presidential candidate Abdullah Abdullah to return to the electoral process after he dropped out earlier this week, accusing the organisers and the president of fraud.
Abdullah withdrew by declaring his camp would regard any outcome as illegitimate and recalling his observers from the vote count for last week's run-off election. He also invited the U.N. to intervene.
