BREAKING NEWS- EWES, WOOLPORT- An attack significantly larger than the roadblock explosion in Pastureville earlier this week and the most high scale attack since the May attack killing five high ranking government officials and a reporter occurred tonight. A multifaceted attack occurred in southern Ewes earlier tonight, with explosions taking out a major bridge on the Alpacatown Expressway that collapsed onto the Cross Ewes Expressway and a bia bia poison dart attack in the nearby Woolhaven subway station. The borough of Ewes is on high alert, and the metro system, motorway A-1 and large sections of A-8 and 8B are all shut down until further notice.
An estimated 23 people died at the scene of the bridge collapse, most of which were on the bridge when it collapsed, while a couple died from getting crushed by falling cars and debris. About 8 people died in the poison dart shooting in the Woolhaven subway station. The men and woman responsible for the subway attack were apprehended shortly after the attack; however those responsible for the bridge explosion are still at large.
The portion of expressway that was blown up was actually a major exit connecting Highway 8B with the Alpacatown Expressway/A-8. The actual Alpacatown Expressway at that point goes through a tunnel, which was not damaged. However, the tunnel has been shut down out of concern that other explosives could be in the tunnel. Squads are checking at this moment to check the safety of the tunnel. The Cross Ewes Expressway is completely blocked at the junction, and is closed in all directions for a large distance.
President Ferdinand Sealy and Woolport Mayor Michael Segaset spoke together to the city shortly after at a press conference in downtown Ewes.
“Tonight, the Woolonian Traditionalist Rebels staged the largest attack on civilians since the Woolonian Civil War. They have crossed a line. It is one thing to attack a government. It is another to attack completely innocent individuals. This did not reflect the goals of the WTR, claiming that their only anger was against the modern Woolonian government. They’ve gone too far.”
Shortly after, a statement from the WTR came saying “Mr. uneducated Sealy. We were not the planners nor perpetrators of this attack. We would have targeted something or someone closer related to the Woolonian government, as you said. This was done by our allies, Sheep in Wolves’ Clothing, who tend to be… less…patient and understanding than us. However, the time had come for action on our end. Perhaps now you will take us and our purpose more seriously.”
Current information does back up that assertion. While the attacks in Pastureville were clearly done by the WTR and the attack killing Gerald Astern and others in May were as well, the attacks in Freedemia and tonight’s attack appear to have been the work of Sheep in Wolves’ Clothing. This, however, is the first time evidence shows the group’s are working together.
