The Storks, Togo’s long-suffering national team, had a real chance at some glory in this year’s Africa Cup of Nations. Lomé-born Emanuel Adebayor of Manchester City (“Adebayor, Adebayor, give him the ball and he will score!”) is now among the best strikers in the world.

Obviously, fate could not allow something so unambiguously nice to happen to Togo, so the team’s bus was machine-gunned by a long-forgotten rebel group as it crossed the border from Congo-Kinshasa into Angola. The driver was killed, and at least two players were injured. Adebayor says the team will likely pull out of the tournament.
