Afghan officials say a bomb blast at a market in the country's north has killed nine people, including a local official.

Police say Monday's explosion struck a shop in the Ghormuch district of Faryab province.

It is unclear who was responsible .

Afghanistan's north has seen less violence than the south, where Taliban insurgents have a strong hold on many areas.
