A group of unidentified armed men ambushed a convoy carrying an aid worker from Salisford. The armed men stopped the convoy, which contained two vehicles, and shot at the front vehicle. The aid worker, who was in the passenger seat of the first vehicle, was hit multiple times in the chest. Lyoan army personnel and Salisfordian gendarmes riding in the second vehicle hopped out to return fire, but the attackers had fled before the guards could properly aim at the assailants. At the end of the attack, the driver (Lance Rukongo) and the aid worker (Teodoro Palermo) were dead. No group has claimed the attack, but the government has attributed it to the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Creeperopolis.
COMISEQ - February 25, 2021
Noticing the presence of the new pro-COMISEQ peace movement led by Josiah Dezerat, COMISEQ has decided to reach out to the movement and its leader. COMISEQ proposes a meeting between representatives of the group and COMISEQ officers to discuss the group's aims and methods on how to establish a lasting peace in Sequoyah as well as a society undivided by racial issues.
COMISEQ has also issued a statement proclaiming its intention to disarm all paramilitary groups, stating that the mission intends for the move to "prevent further violence". This new initiative is believed to be targeting both the ADI and Odyssian Clan groups. COMISEQ has also expressed its intention to deploy peacekeeping forces to New Austin to discourage violence associated with the Caprican conflict.
Many thanks and epic shoutouts to those who came:
