Attack on the ruins of the Great Temple of Praf
Late at night on the 5th of April 2210 AE shots could be heard in the suburbs of Al-Sharit coming from the ruins of the once Great Temple of Praf, the last heretical religion to exist on Vaeria. This Heresy was officially declared as cleansed in the second half of the 20th century AE, after the Praftis Purges.
In a press release the IIA states:
“On the night of the 5th of April an unknown number of culprits have attacked the ruins of the Great Temple of Praf, killing 37 Children of Arius in the process. The Holy Order of the Children of Arius and IIA are now conducting a joint investigation of the incident. We ask you to report any suspicious behavior you may have witnessed this night in Al-Sharit. The Emperor has assured both of our Organizations that we have his full support in finding these dangerous criminals.”
Our correspondents in Al-Sharit tell us of an unusual high amount of IIA Agents and Children of Arius arriving to secure the site. Sources in the Imperial Interstellar Navy also tell us about one corvette being deployed in a geostationary orbit above Al-Sharit, something usually done when the Emperor declares a matter important to the Holy Imperial Order.
As to what really is going on the local populous and the Internet is already speculating. Officials on the scene however tell us, that the Empire takes terrorism really serious and that all of these actions are merely precautions, to guarantee the safety of the region.
