Cabinda in the spotlight due to football
The attack and murder of Togolese footballers in Angola has drawn the attention of the media, yes even of the Sun. It is amazing how a link with football can make news. Lara Pawson writes in the Guardian that Cabinda should be kept in the spotlight, although it is usually ignored and few seem to know where it is. Cabinda is the sliver of Angolan territory between the two Congos. She writes that there is repression, conflict and oil in the region.
