BBC correspondent Lyse Doucet speaks with us from Kabul, Afghanistan, where the city is preparing for only the second presidential election since the overthrow of the Taliban. Afghans are bracing for violence, as the Taliban has threatened to harm anyone who votes. The Taliban has already rocked the capital city this week with suicide bombings and a rocket attack on the presidential palace.
