Two dudes were arrested in connection with the machine-gun attack that marred the African Cup of Nations before it started.
Instead of people talking about how great the tournament is -- which included an epic Mali comeback to tie Angola 4-4 after being four goals down -- the focus is on Togo being DQ'd for leaving.
But alas, it's all about security. And fair questions are being asked about the continent's preparedness for an even bigger tournament farther south.
The World Cup.
Certainly the questions will have to be answered this summer, but fears will only grow until it's over. It definitely played a part in my wanting to attend the event.
Cross your fingers.
