Togo Soccer Team Attacked By Angolan Rebels

by

On their way to participate in the African Nations Cup, the Togo National Soccer team bus sustained gunfire for thirty minutes, according to team captain Emanuel Adebayor.

There has been a reported 4 deaths arising out of this attack, including one Togolese player. FLEC(Front for the Liberation of the Enclave of Cabinda) claimed responsibility for the attack.

This is a shame. Since when did it become ok for revolutionaries to attack unarmed athletes? It is a despicable act because it uses innocents for its greater fight against the Angolan government.  Such is terrorism.

Togo is pulling out of the competition and rightly so. Other teams may follow.
