Accomplices of David Zhou arrested

Today, after a brief seige of one of the few large, wealthy houses in Laguna la Mer, ten Ensuñans were arrested as prime suspects in the assassination of King-Emperor Daniel I. The involved vehicles included a tank, three helicopters, and a gunboat. The suspects were caught with, among other things, 10 unopened cases of bullets identical to the ones used to kill Emperor Daniel I and Duke Horace IX, among others. The suspects are expected to be brought before the USNW High Court within two weeks, in what will likely be the USNWHC's first case. The suspect's names and ages are:

Felipe Sanchez, 29
Marco Fernandez, 45
Leonardo Fernandez, 39
Jose Gonzalez, 27
Adolfo Marquez, 53
Sebastian Rosales, 37
Pedro Guerra, 45
Pablo Mendizabal, 35
Manuel O'Ryan. 21
Francisco Sancho, 57

The charges per person are expected to include:

Illegal possession of firearms (30 years)
Illegal possession of bullets (10 years)
Illegal possession of explosive substances (35 years)
Accomplices in five counts of murder (5 death sentences)
Ten counts of attempted murder (10 death sentences)
Second-Degree Treason (death sentence) [WILL NOT BE TRIED IN USNWHC]
Membership in an illegal organization, the Ensuñan Liberation Army [ELA] (50 years)
Three counts of assault (30 years)

Defers Film Festival Award Ceremony takes place
by Nicholas Kawak


Top: Loggers; Bottom: Attack of the Killer Parrots


DEFERS, RCD- Yesterday the First Defers International Film Festival Awards Ceremony took place. Anticipation was high as to which films would win awards, as many of the film companies premiering films at the festival are among the largest on Adonia. Although, of course, betting on the winners of different awards was discouraged, it was still commonplace. Speculation was especially rampant as to who would win the Golden Ceannaire (Best Director), Golden Fabhcun (Best Actor), Golden Iolar (Best Actress), and Best Overall Film awards, as they are considered to be the most prestigious in the film industry.

After the usual opening formalities, the awards began to be presented. The first one, the Defers Award for Best Romantic Drama, was presented to the Grandian film Loggers, directed by Andrew Markson, and starring such Grandian film stars as Jim Falkirk and Annette Shelling. The next one, for Best Military Film, was an incredibly close contest between Cuando Empecé Pensar (When I Started to Think), from Insulo, starring Victor Olivo as the Insulonian national hero Don Capel, and What Really Matters, a joint Grandian-Posilliponian film, directed by Tristan Lucas Hughes, and starring Désirée Jocelyn as Princess Ariana Dankov, but ended with Cuando being declared the victor.

Due to there being only one film in the "Documentary Films" category, hike, directed by Bonifaci Pearson, automatically won the award for Best Documentary Film. The Martopian film The Jungle, directed by Luke Williams, and featuring Steven Dreamer, the son of the late Martopian President, as Hunter Jackson, was also the only film in the "Nature Films" category, and so automatically won the Defers Award for Best Nature Film. The originally intended recipient of the award for Best Other Film was the Grandian Mystery in Erikkson, directed by Sam Brian, and starring Anna Shmidt as Ruth von Dellwick, but on the morning of the ceremony, all the judges unanimously voted to change that to Attack of the Killer Parrots, also a Grandian film, directed by Kyle Grant, of Trentannian ancestry.

After these awards came the ones that were most looked forward to, colloquially referred to as the "Golden Four". The first one, the Defers Golden Ceannaire for Best Director, went to the Ruterian Jaime Aragon, who directed The Time, which has been praised for its stunning visual effects, but which has fallen short in other areas. After that, the Defers Golden Fabhcun for Best Actor was presented to Trentannian-Grandian Andy Norman, who portrays New Friscian detective Tommy la Fon in Attack of the Killer Parrots. The Defers Golden Iolar for Best Actress was next, and was presented to Posilliponian Désirée Jocelyn, who portrays Princess Ariana Dankov in What Really Matters.

The final, and most anticipated award, the Defers Award for Best Overall Film, was to be presented to one of the following nominees:
Loggers
The Jungle
hike
Cuando Empecé Pensar
Attack of the Killer Parrots


After a suspenseful wait, the winner was announced to be Loggers, to much applause. In the words of Fin Carter, the main presenter of the Festival: "This film featured such a unique story line with new twists everywhere but not so twisty that it was incomprehensible. It was an incredible tragedy and surely, the production staff should remain together to create more films and return down the road in the festival."

Table of Awards:

Attack of the Killer Parrots (2) (Best Other Film, Golden Fabhcun [Best Actor])
Constantly Meeting (0)
Cuando Empecé Pensar (1) (Best Military Film)
hike (1) (Best Documentary Film)
Loggers (2) (Best Romantic Drama, Best Overall Film)
Mystery in Erikkson (0)
The Jungle (1) (Best Nature Film)
The Time (1) (Golden Ceannaire [Best Director])
Through the Western Hedges (0)
What Really Matters (1) (Golden Iolar [Best Actress])






Grand prepares launching of nuclear missile
by Amy Higgins


Shot Desert Fox, the largest Grandian nuke detonated to date


APELKOS, MAL- The Ministry of Defense wishes to inform the USNW that it will be testing a live nuclear missile on the 20th, which shall, after being launched from a military base in Grand, enter orbit, and fly over the following countries, in the following order: Puget, Andarana, Alzata, and Zebtesia. It will deorbit near the Zebtesian border, and will re-enter the atmosphere over northern Malo, striking its target in the Forgian Desert Testing Range.

As for the shot "Desert Fox", it was a complete success, with a higher than expected yield of 37 kilotons.

Utrova Attacked!!!
by Amy Higgins


Utrovan task force en route to Usenbal
ORKOVGRAD, UTR- Things are in a state of confusion here in the Utrovan capital, as we have received word that a large Rallistanian army has attempted to invade Utrova via Solvia, a former USNW member state. However, thanks to the excellent defenses in place on the Solvian-Utrovan border, most of the Rallistanians didn't make it home alive, let alone in one piece. During the confusion, four nuclear landmines were detonated, vaporizing thousands of the enemy on the spot. Hours later, Rallistanian dictator Usef Sanhidrin issued a declaration of war against Utrova. A large number of bombers & fighters were dispatched to destroy Utrovan cities near to the border, but most of them were shot down over Solvian territory by the SAM launchers placed around the border. Utrova has just dispatched a large task force to launch a counterattack on Rallistanian soil. Our beloved Charles I has pledged that he will provide, to the best of his ability, whatever his cousin, Tsar Stanislav VIII, needs to defend Utrova.

Speculation is rife, especially as to what could be the cause of this sudden invasion, and also about what role Solvia is playing in the conflict, as the original invasion was launched from Solvian territory, and many of the invading aircraft were shot down over Solvia. More on this story as it develops.
