STORYLINE:
Members of the Mozambique national football team expressed their concerns on Saturday over their safety during the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations in the wake of a gun attack on the Togo national football team in Cabinda, north of Angola.
Transiting through Johannesburg airport en route to Luanda, Angola, some of the Mozambique players said they were on edge.
"Of course I think it is very worrying. Today we are boarding for Angola, but, I''m afraid � I''m afraid," said team goalkeeper Otshudi Lam� during check-in formalities.
The team''s assistant coach, Amade Chababe, added that security during the tournament was now a real issue.
"We cannot say that it happened only to Togo. Who knows what is going to happen to us?" said Chababe.
Mozambique is due to play their first game against Benin on 12 January 2010 in Benguela.
Gunmen in a part of Angola plagued by separatist violence opened fire with machine-guns on a bus carrying the Togo team to the tournament on Friday, killing the driver and wounding at least nine people.
Togo''s footballers, two of whom were hit, said they wanted to pull out of the 16-nation tournament, though a member of the Angola organising committee said it will go ahead as planned from Sunday.
Togo''s bus in a convoy from Congo was 10 kilometers (six miles) across the border in Angola when it came under fire.
Portugal''s state-run Lusa news agency said it received a communication from the region''s main separatist group, FLEC, claiming to have carried out the attack.
