KABUL (Reuters) - Afghan presidential contender Abdullah Abdullah told thousands of supporters on Tuesday he was the winner of last month's run-off election, putting himself on a collision course with his arch-rival, Ashraf Ghani.

"We are the winner of this round of elections without any doubt," he told a roaring crowd in central Kabul.
