Afghan media reports say that over 50 people were killed on the days of Afghan parliamentary elections.

The Taliban had vowed to attack the election, and on the first day of polling at least 36 people were killed in nearly 200 attacks, including 27 civilians, Deputy Interior Minister Akhtar Mohammed Ibrahimi was quoted as saying. 

Afghanistan's second day of parliamentary elections came to a close as a roadside bomb brought the two-day death toll to over 50.

Citing Attahullah Khogyani, a spokesman for the Nangarhar province, some media reports say at least eleven people, including six children, were killed on October 21 as a roadside bomb in the eastern Nangarhar province struck a vehicle filled with civilians.

Khaama Press new agency reported yesterday that the dead bodies of at least four people have been found in Mazar-i Sharif city, the provincial capital of northern Balkh province of Afghanistan.

The local officials reportedly confirm that four individuals were killed after they were kidnapped from Nahr Shahi district on Saturday.

A spokesman for the provincial Security Commandment Sher Jan Durani confirmed that the dead bodies of four people have been found in the city but did not elaborate further.

A security source reportedly says the slain individuals were observers of a parliamentary candidate who were abducted and killed by the militants.

The source further added that the election observers were abducted by the militants from Afghania Mina area of Nahr Shahi district late on Saturday evening.

No individual or group including the Taliban militants has so far claimed responsibility behind the incident.

Meanwhile,  the Independent Elections Commission (IEC) of Afhganistan says around 4 million people out of the 8.8 million registered voters cast their ballots over Saturday and Sunday.

A new biometric system aimed at stemming fraud was reportedly used to the parliamentary elections in Afghanistan this year.
