Togo soccer team returns home after quitting cup

Togo's national soccer team landed back in the capital Lome on Sunday, a Reuters witness said, after suffering a deadly ambush in Angola before the start of the African Nations Cup tournament.

The team was attacked by separatist rebels on Friday as it travelled by bus through Angola's Cabinda enclave. The assistant coach and a press officer were killed, as was the bus driver.

Earlier on Sunday, Togolese Prime Minister Gilbert Houngbo said the team must not participate in the tournament in Angola, Africa's biggest soccer competition.
