A bomb exploded at a Moscow bus stop, injuring four people, a spokesman for the capital's Federal Security Service said.

The explosion had a force of about 100 grams of TNT, the security service's duty officer said, citing preliminary information.

It shattered the glass walls of the bus shelter located on Kashirskoye highway in southern Moscow.

The four injured included a woman who was in grave condition at a Moscow hospital, authorities said.

Kirill Mazurin, spokesman for the Moscow police, said on Russia's NTV television that authorities were investigating the attack as hooliganism.

NTV reported that terrorism had not been ruled out since the bus stop was located across from a police station and the explosion went off at a time when officers were usually leaving work.

The Interfax news agency, citing an Interior Ministry official, also noted that there were a number of kiosks nearby and investigators could not yet rule out that the business owners were the targets.
