Four voters were wounded in an explosion at a polling station in the southeastern province of Logar.

"The blast took place close to a polling station which is a school building and wounded four voters, one critically," Abdul Hameed, governor of the province's Mohammad Agha district, told Reuters.

It was the most serious attack so far on an election that Taliban insurgents had

vowed to derail, branding it a U.S.-backed sham.
