KABUL, Afghanistan — A teenage suicide bomber blew himself up in a crowded bazaar in western Afghanistan on Friday, killing at least nine people and wounding 30 others, police said.

The attack targeted the head of the Faryab provincial council, Mullah Rahmatullah Turkistani, police chief Khalil Andarabi said. Turkistani, who was wounded in the blast, regularly visits the bazaar in Khwaja Sabz Post district on Fridays to hear citizens' concerns and dine at a local restaurant, Andarabi said.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai condemned the attack as an "anti-Islamic" act, but stressed it would not halt his government's efforts to promote peace and stability in Afghanistan.
