KABUL: Seven people were killed on Wednesday when a suicide bomber struck a minibus carrying employees of popular Afghan TV channel TOLO, just months after the Taliban declared the network a legitimate “military target”.

The bombing near the Russian embassy in downtown Kabul also left 24 people wounded, in the latest in a wave of attacks despite an international push to jumpstart Taliban peace talks.

No group has so far claimed responsibility for the bombing, which marks the first major attack on a media organisation in Afghanistan.

“Our office bus taking TOLO staff home came under attack,” an employee at the channel told AFP, requesting anonymity.
