Togo team bus attacked


Recommended Posts

Manchester City have confirmed that Emmanuel Adebayor, their striker, was unhurt after the Togo national side's team bus came under fire in Angola.

According to reports, the bus driver was killed while two players and two medics suffered injuries during the attack with machine guns as the team travelled through the Cabinda region bordering Congo.

"I'm okay but several players are in a bad state," Thomas Dossevi, the Togo and Nantes striker, told French radio station RMC.

"We are still in hospital. We were machine-gunned like dogs and had to remain hidden under our seats for around 20 minutes to avoid the bullets

The Togo team are currently in Angola preparing for the African Cup of Nations, which gets underway on Sunday. Togo are scheduled to begin their cup campaign against Ghana on Monday.
