Five dead in Afghan suicide attack

At least five people died and 35 others were wounded Friday when a suicide bomber struck a crowded marketplace in northern Afghanistan, a government official told CNN.

The incident took place in Faryab province and the target of the attack was the head of the provincial council, who was standing in front of the shop he owns, according to Abdul Satar Barez, deputy to Faryab's governor.

The bomber approached the provincial council official with a petition when he blew himself up. The official was injured and the rest of the dead and injured were civilians.

Friday is the traditional shopping day in the villages of Faryab.

    Dindy....politics is the root of all evil. we believe in what our leaders want us to believe in. Who knows the reality behind the curtains. i pray with you together that god bring your son back home in one peice. The problem will not be solved with our troops coming back home or staying here. Its a fundemental issue and requires the entire world to act on it so that our children can sleep in peace, have the freedom to go to school and have the right to chose for themselves without any fear. I am a soldier myself and serving in this country and to me, we shouldnt be the only country to tackle this. Its a global issue and it much be addressed globaly.

    Liberal.......Do you think if all the troops come back home the problem will be solved. I like it very much if that can happen. Because my son is also in the US Army . May be ..still we will have to secure borders and increase intelligence all over the globe. when think of 9/11 I cant breath free. God did not send them . So you know who then. Please make a wish that all of us can get heal from that wound and forgive and Move on.

    It makes me sick just to read your comments in here. I assume every one of you to be adult and have the ability to think. proving ones religion wrong over the other didnt really give us nothig but many crusades in the past and many to come. if we consider ourselves educated than we must also feel it and bring it withen. Its the leaders of these factions who use idiotic people like you to use the name of the religion to go and kill innocents. Its about time for us to say enough or else we will be the cause for the distruction of entire human being on this planet.

      GOD was the one that said Thou Not Kill!!! The Jewish People tried to live by that and 6 million Jews died because of it... That is why GOD told the Jews to never let it happen again!!! Why do You think Israel are such great fighters...

    Dan in Lafayette.........alqueda.... trying to sit on the place of God. Not only they blow off themselves (God given body) But blowing off others. They say it is better to die than obeying Hindu. So they decide everything by their own. They dont wait for God's punishment on the one who does wrong (if any one does) But they punish before God does. Victims have been children too in many incidents like this. when they attack USA they tried to Justify saying it is Israel and the support t Israel. I wonder what is this time. Now they kill innocents in Churches and Mosques.

    Letting God to answer is a different process. But acting by own desire and destroy God "s created body is a crime. WE ARE GIVEN THIS BODY TO COMMUNICATE WITH GOD. nOT TO BLOW OTHERS AND BLOW YOUR SELF WITH MAN MADE EXPLOSIVES. These fundamentalists are exceeding the truth ( God)
    when pray to god he sent fire to burn the cow. But when they cut off their hands and prayed whole day to Baal and nothing happen. Praying is better than killing oneself .

      The worst day fishing is better than the best day being a suicide bomber.
      "Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing.”- The Bible.
