Two confirmed dead in Togolese attack.

Togolese Prime Minister Gilbert Fossoun Houngbo said Saturday on Togolese national television that goalkeeper Kodjovi Obilale and defender Serge Akakpo are still alive following the deadly gun attack to its soccer squad bus in Cabinda, Angola on Friday.

The Prime Minister said that it was a good news that Obilale is in stable condition and even talked to his brother.

Meanwhile, Houngbo said that Togo will hold three days of mourning for the assistant coach and squad spokesman of its national football team, who were killed in the gun attack.

"The government has decided to decree three days of national mourning beginning from Monday," said Houngbo.

Earlier reports said the goalkeeper and an Angolan driver were killed, but they were both still alive, confirmed the Prime Minister.

Obilale was receiving a second operation in a hospital in Johannesburg after the first in Cabinda.

He also also revealed that Angolan driver who was initially said to have died is also recovering after an emergency operation.

On Friday, Cabinda separatist rebels opened fire as the Togo soccer team's buses crossed into the Angolan enclave of Cabinda for the African Nations Cup.
