Two actors were killed and three others wounded in Angola while filming a bank robbery scene for a crime drama.

The film makers believed had police clearance to film in a crime-ridden suburb but the marksmen suddenly arrived in a pick-up truck and began shooting until he shouted out their victims were actors.
