A good friend is now on holiday in Western Africa and he supposed to fly from Lome to Brussels via Tripoli on Afriqiyah Airways tonight ! But the president of Togo died friday and I heared all borders are closed. Does anyone know anything of the actual situation? Or a website to find out if flights are operating or rerouted. His flightnr is 8U-749. And more in general, what do airlines do in situations like that? Reroute or cancel flights all together?

nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

I hope the presidents passing will not lead to any unrest in Togo. It has always been one of the most stable countries in West Africa and that situation must have been, in part, to the president of the country.

The former president of Togo was a cruel dictator. In the December 16th, 2004 edition of "The Economist" there was a good article titled "The world's last personality cults", which was about the dictators of North Korea, Turkmenistan and Togo. Although the former dictator of Togo was the least cruel of the three (North Korea's the worst), he was still a pretty bad guy.

I think the reason Togo was so stabile country is due to the lack of oil and diamonds finds, it posed itself as a trading spot for all kinds of shady dealings...
