FV places claim on timely attack
PORTI IKSTIS, Viske (VKK) - Radical Visken seperatist group Fiskřr Vriegetufˇrsid (Liberation Front of Viske) has claimed reposibility to yesterday's bombing at the Visken capital. Authorities later confirmed, that on a fax sent to VKK, FV stated that the bombing was their "deliberately timed signal to the Fyksian government and the royal family". The attack came only a week before Fyksland day, when the annivesary of the royal house and the restoration of the Fyksian kingdom are celebrated. Viske separatist party Parti Isfjordika immediately disassociated the party with the radical group as soon as the FV claim was released. (to read more...)
Visken bombing shocks leaders
KAANS─ (VKK) - Leaders around Europe and the world were as surprised at Monday's bombing as many Fyksians since radical violence at this magnitude has not occured in Fyksland for over half a century. "The Vriegetufˇrsid has caught us off guard," said Prime Minister Stotson, "but you can be sure everything will be done to make sure these fanatics will never do it again." While the Visken separatist movement, for decades, has never been anything more than political parties that occasionally push their issues over the table at the Al■ig, there has been a widely circulated fear that the recently grouped Fiskřr Vriegetufˇrsid and their radical movement may escalate into something like Northern Ireland's IRA or Basque's ETA.

Fyksland urged to stop deportation
KAANS─, (VKK) - The United Nation's refugee agency has urged Fyksland to stop returning home unsuccessful Zimbabwean asylum-seekers. The agency is concerned that those deported could fall foul of extra-judicial executions, hostage-taking, torture and violence in the run-up to presidential elections in March. But the Immigration and Refugee Board insisted there were no grounds for it to change the basis on which unsuccessful asylum seekers were removed from Fyksland. Of the 152 Zimbabweans who applied during 2001, two percent were granted asylum in Fyksland and a further 31 percent appealed successfully against deportation. (to read more...)
