A journalist and a studio technician were killed after a TV channel vehicle hit an IED in Kabul, Afghan officials said.

The attack took place on Saturday in the city's PD4 area, TOLO News reported.

Khurshid TV's economic reporter Zamir Amiri and technical staff member Shafiq were killed in the blast.

Rafi Sediqqi, the editor-in-chief of Khurshid TV, said that six staff members of the channel were wounded in the blast and two are in serious condition.

Those wounded in the blast were transferred to Kabul's Emergency Hospital.

Sediqqi said that no group or individual had threatened the TV channel recently.

"Such attacks will not demoralize Afghan journalists and media outlets from reporting the news," said Sediqqi.

The Taliban's spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid in a statement denied involvement.

Last August, a magnetic IED blast targeted a bus carrying the employees of Khurshid TV in the fifth street of Taimani in Kabul's Police District 4.
