Afghanistan inaugurates new parliament

Afghanistan’s new parliament was inaugurated in Kabul on Wednesday, four months after a nationwide election that critics said was marked by extensive fraud. The inauguration ended a political standoff between President Hamid Karzai and the parliament. Karzai announced the inauguration on Monday, after Afghani­stan’s Supreme Court sent word that it would not intercede in the seating of parliament following a deal between Karzai and the parliament over prosecuting crimes arising from last year’s elections.
