Afghan election goes to run-off

Afghanistan will hold a deciding round of its problem-hit presidential poll on November 7th, pitting incumbent Hamid Karzai against his rival Abdullah Abdullah. News of the run-off vote comes after a UN-backed panel said it had clear evidence of fraud in August's first round, lowering Karzai's vote share below 50%. Initial results suggested Karzai had received 55% of the vote, and ex-Foreign Minister Abdullah 28%. Marco Werman talks with Waheed Omer, a campaign spokesperson for Karzai.
