A bomb targeting TV-station workers in the Afghan capital killed at least seven people and wounded more than two dozen others Wednesday, officials said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the blast near the Russian embassy, though the Taliban has previously threatened journalists from Tolo TV, the target of the attack.

Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqqi told NBC News a bomber in a Toyota targeted a minibus carrying employees of a Tolo-owned production company.

He said four of the seven dead were women and that 27 civilians were injured – mostly production-company employees on the bus.
