I asked you on my Twitter page if you thought the Africa football tournament should be canceled after the deadly assault on Togo's national team.

Here are some of your responses:

“The whole thing should be called off, players are not safe & in respect of the dead participants. Let’s not wait for more attacks.” (Cassiel Irimagha)

“As a South African this is disheartening to hear, but I believe it must go on.” Byron Castle Marello
“The same question was raised in Munich 1972. The answer is the same. The games must go on. Otherwise the bad guys win.” (Michael)

“Hell yeah it should be canceled! The entire tournament has been tainted. I would be uncomfortable if I were to be taking part.” (Richard Arabome)

“No. That's exactly what they want. We can't give power to this of people. But of course, we gotta take a closer look on security.” (Julia)
