Violence after Togo 2-1 Mali
Mood:  irritated
Topic: Odd stuff
This week-end, short before the end of the football game opposing Togo to Mali, in Bamako, the supporters interrupted the game after the second togolese goal, and rushed on the playground, making the police use tear gas to contain the mob.
The game has been won 2-1 by Togo.
The angry supporters damaged a lot of the malian capital's monuments and building.
They were also reclaiming the heads of some team members and football league officials.
Around a hundred people were arrested on that day.
This is a very saddening reaction to a sport game.
I hope the malian governement will soon clear this issue and set an example so as to keep this from happening anywhere esle in Africa.
