US President Barack Obama warned the two candidates in Afghanistan's disputed presidential election that violence or taking "extra-constitutional means" would result in him stopping US assistance to the war-torn country.

The White House said in a statement, in phone calls to Ashraf Ghani and Abdullah Abdullah, Obama "stressed that the United States expects a thorough review of all reasonable allegations of fraud to ensure a credible electoral process.


The calls, to Ghani on Tuesday and Abdullah on Monday night, came, as the latter claimed victory, blaming fraud for putting him behind in preliminary results, as fears rise of instability and ethnic unrest in Afghanistan.
