ACCRA - Ghana is demanding extra security for its players at the Africa Cup of Nations in Angola following Friday's deadly attack on the Togolese squad, the government said yesterday.

Ghana is one of the teams based in Cabinda in Angola where separatist rebels claimed respons-ibility for Friday's ambush that left at least two dead and several wounded.

Ghana president John Atta-Mills "has demanded extra security for players," information minister Zita Okaikoi said.

Togo players have decided to stay on and take part in the tournament, but the government in Lome is ordering their immediate return. They are scheduled to come up against Ghana today in a Group B opening match.
