Salifou Shocked But Unhurt In Bus Gunning

Salifou Shocked But Unhurt In Bus Gunning

An awful incident has occurred involving the Togo team bus in the African Cup Of Nations.

Moustapha Salifou has come out unhurt following a gunman opening fire on the bus carrying the team to the tournament.

It has been reported that Salifou has assured his brother that he is ok:

Salifou said: 'I am okay but extremely shocked and very upset.'

Sadly it appears that the bus driver has been killed and there are six seriously injured.

Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor was also on the bus and is also uninjured.

Awful, just awful. Makes you fear for what might happen at the World Cup doesn't it?

> Makes you fear for what might happen at the World Cup doesn't it? Not really. Angola is over 1500 miles away from South Africa - just because it's on the same continent, it doesn't mean it's a similar place. It's 1500 miles from London to Moscow - if there was an incident in Russia, would you doubt England's ability to host a World Cup?

I really hope people don't come out with any stupid comments, I've seen a lot of them from Arsenal fans re Adebayor. At the end of the day it was bloody horrible what happened, and the death of the driver really brings home just how awful it was. The fact is this tournament shouldn't even be on; as horrible as it is to hear about, what is just as horrible is how it is not even surprising.

Thoughts go out to the family of the dead, can't see this being the last incident though unfortunately.
