Togo Attack

“Angolan authorities have arrested two people over a deadly attack on Togo's football team at the Africa Cup of Nations tournament, state media says. Angola's National Radio reported that two suspects were arrested in the northern province of Cabinda - where Togo's team bus was attacked on Friday. Cabinda has seen a low-level insurgency for many years. Three Togolese officials were killed in Friday's attack and the team has gone home for three days of mourning. The attack has overshadowed the start of the Cup of Nations - a showpiece event for both Angola, recovering from years of war, and African football ahead of the World Cup in June, which the continent is hosting for the first time. The team was attacked by gunmen as their bus made its way from a training camp in the Republic of Congo to the venue in Cabinda City. A faction of the Cabinda separatist rebel group, Front for the Liberation of the Enclave of Cabinda (Flec), has claimed responsibility for the 30-minute machine-gun attack.”
