Polls closed in Afghanistan's run-off presidential election on Saturday, with officials hailing the security forces after Taliban militants failed to launch a major attack during voting.

"The IEC announces the end of voting process," an Independent Election Commission official told AFP. "Those who are still waiting in the lines can cast their votes."
