Togo have withdrawn from the African Nations Cup in Angola as the death toll following the attack on their team bus reached three, according to reports.

The bus came under machine gunfire on Friday just after it had crossed the border from the Democratic Republic of Congo into the Angolan enclave of Cabinda.

It was confirmed on Friday night that the bus driver was killed in the attack, while reports from France claimed an assistant coach and a press officer also died from their injuries.

BBC Radio 5 Live said that the team had pulled out of the competition.
