Two members of Togo's national soccer squad have died after the team's bus was ambushed on Friday by gunmen in Angola's Cabinda area, Togo goalkeeper Kossi Agassa told French radio France Info.
"We have just been told that our assistant coach and our press officer have died", Agassa said on Saturday.
The regional director of medical assistance company international SOS in Johannesburg told Reuters his company had been asked to evacuate two members of the Togo party to South Africa and that one patient had died.
"I don't know if it was a player or not, Fraser Lamond told Reuters.
The Togo team attacked shortly after it entered oil-producing Cabinda, where it was scheduled to play in the African Nations Cup which starts on Sunday.
