Afghan presidential inauguration delayed until after Sept 10

Afghanistan's prolonged election crisis was extended further on Thursday when the United Nations said an audit of votes would not be completed until September 10 and the inauguration of a new president was expected soon after.

"A rigorous and credible audit required time, but could be completed around 10 September," a UN statement said.

"The inauguration of the new president should then be possible soon after."
