Togo's Kodjovi Obilale undergoes rehabilitation in an hospital in Lorient, Brittany, Tuesday Sept.21, 2010.  Terrorist bullets shattered his spine, football's indifference shattered his faith. "It's a rotten world," says Kodjovi Obilale, the once strapping but now crippled goalkeeper left wheelchair-bound by the attack on Togo's bus at the Africa Cup of Nations. Eight months later, FIFA is now belatedly promising "concrete" steps to help the player who has fought a dispiriting battle for compensation. (AP Photo/David Vincent)
