Togo withdraws from African Cup of Nations

9 Jan

After their buses were attacked en route to Angola, the Togo national soccer team has withdrawn from the African Cup of Nations.  At least three members in their party have been killed in the machine gun attack by Angolan rebels.  Several players have also been injured. 

It’s a horribly scary and sad event.  It’s truly unfortunate that something like this overshadowed a simple sporting event.  People are calling for the Cup of Nations to be cancelled in light of the tragedy.
