A deal to form a government of national unity in Afghanistan has been signed at a ceremony in Kabul.

The signing - broadcast live on national TV - comes after months of wrangling following presidential elections in April and June.

Under the deal, Ashraf Ghani becomes president while runner-up Abdullah Abdullah nominates a CEO with powers similar to those of prime minister.

The final result of the bitterly contested poll is due to be announced.

Both sides had accused the other of fraud following the election.

Ghani and Abdullah signed the agreement at a ceremony inside the presidential palace in the capital, Kabul.
