Voting going on smoothly across Khost: Officials
KHOST CITY (Pajhwok): Independent Election Commission and security officials say some attacks took place but the polling process was proceeding normally in southeastern Khost province.
On the other hand, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid tweeted some polling centres were attacked by the movement’s fighters in Nader Shahkot and Alisher districts.
He claimed IEC employees and security personnel had fled the centres and polling had stopped the two districts.
