Togolese national team shot

There are reports out (BBC, AP) that Togo's national soccer team's bus has been attacked by gunmen and several team members and staff have been injured. The team was traveling from Congo-Brazzaville, where it had been training, to Angola, for the upcoming African Nations Cup. The incident occurred in the Angolan enclave of Cabinda, which is separated from the rest of Angola by a sliver of DR Congo territory. Cabinda has been plagued by militants fighting for the independence of the oil-rich enclave.
