Remiville (Belphenia State Television, Sakura News Center, MBS News Now, News 9 Erzaleria) – Although there were not any immediate assassination threats, governments and officials in Belphenia, Erzaleria, and Maydien are on high alert and tightened security measures following the failed assassination attempt against Freedemian leader Angela Rosenthal at an event in Quentinsburgh’s Seven Point Park district.
Belphenia’s prime minister Erza Beard was briefed during her visit in Cadendandra, Xanthe when she heard the news about the failed assassination attempt in Freedemia by an agent from the Secretive Service of Belphenia. “Today, many of our fellow Belphenians were shocked by the incident that took place in Freedemia when they saw the world news tonight. A rebellious, Woolonian Rebel scum, blew a blow dart at our fellow friend, Angela Rosenthal of Freedemia, in an apparent assassination attempt against the Freedemian leader. Fortunately, the dart whizzed by and missed Rosenthal, and she survived… the national officials discovered an object that it appeared to be a blow dart, equipped with a strong poison derived from the bia bia plant, showing that this was a dart that is commonly being used by farmers across Woolonia to kill wolves threatening their sheep. Locally, in Belphenia, the dart with the poison was commonly used by the samurai and pirates during the first stage of the Battle of Shirahoshi war in 2011 and 2013. Since then, it is already illegal in the Theocratic People’s Kingdom of Belphenia. The Government of Belphenia was shocked by what happened in Freedemia and have been praying for our dear friends in Freedemia and their leader, Angela Rosenthal. From now on, the TPKB will consider tightening security measures to the fullest extent of the law following the incident in Freedemia. On behalf of the Government of Belphenia, I am hereby condemn the actions of the Woolonian rebel’s actions against the Freedemian leader, and deem the individual’s assassination attempt as ‘an act of terrorism'”, Erza Beard, Prime Minister of Belphenia said in an emergency speech at the Cadendandra City Hall.
In Erzaleria, Prime Minister Māhoe ʻAukai and Keoni Kahananui, the island nation’s leader, deemed the failed assassination attempt as “a wicked act by means of assassination”.
Maydien’s prime minister Clayborn Pedersen declared the actions of the Woolonian rebel’s actions as “an extreme threat to Angela Rosenthal of Freedemia, the Freedemian government, and the people of Freedemia in an apparent assassination incident against their leader”.
