Emperor’s Health Failing
WILKE’S STAR (ICN) – The
Imperial Physician, Dr. Won-Sik Cho, finally admitted at a press conference
today that His Imperial Majesty’s health has not improved from his bout of
Virus Strain Three that he experienced back in March. Although his condition is
serious, His Majesty’s life is not immediately in danger, as Crown Prince Rao
has not been made regent. Apparently His Majesty is still able to perform the
duties of the state, although he is currently bedridden, and only appears
Dr. Cho was allowed to comment saying, “There is absolutely no indication that the mechanisms of state will continue as always.” The heir-apparent’s secretary stated it clearer by saying, “Our glorious empire will always thrive; the weight of history is behind us.”
Raids Along the Southern Frontier
CHARBYDIS (WRPC) – Reports have been filtering down, since the Ashdown Rebellion was crushed back in May, that elements of the rebel fleet were able to escape. These ships have continued to plague commerce through the southern frontier through the Frontier Worlds and the New Colonies. The implementation of convoys through this troubled space has not stopped the attacks. Admiral Take of the 4th Fleet has told us that he has dispatched the 7th Imperial Cruiser Squadron to “personally hunt down these pirates once and for all.” The commander of this squadron, Vice-Admiral Poudyal, held a conference when he reached Charbydis System, where he stated “that once we close the noose around these brigands, it won’t be long before they’re eliminated.”
“Special Emergency” in New
Four Christians Killed in Riots
SAN ANGELES (NIM) - Clashes between Jewish authorities and the Christian minority left four dead after the New Israeli Militia opened fire when the fundamentalists decided to march on a synagogue which had been built on the ruins of a Orthodox Baptist church. Although warnings to the officers to use only non-lethal ammo were issued, “shots were fired” from the supposedly peaceful marchers and two officers decided to open fire with live ammunition. The commandant of the Watts District apologized for the incident, but defiantly stated that “until these fundies learn that there will never be another Christian Federation, these incidents will continue.
