It has been a week since Togolese photojournalist Komi Agbedivlo, better known as "Didier Ledoux,"
was verbally abused by a military officer from France
as he covered a political demonstration in the capital, Lome
. The incident might have gone unnoticed, if not for social media and a year charged with historical symbolism for Togo
, which is celebrating 50 years
of independence from France
. So the day, far from going unnoticed, has lived on through the Internet.
