KABUL (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will hold a second day of talks with Afghanistan's two presidential candidates on Saturday with talks focused on "many ideas" about a review of votes and ways to build an inclusive, broad-based government in the country, a senior U.S. official said on Friday.

Asked whether the sides were close to a breakthrough on resolving the disputed election, a senior administration official said: "What is on the table is fairly fluid, there are a lot of ideas out there, we will have to see."
