    Good evening

    Across Europe, His Majesty's Government has received statements of support and offers of aid from Inimicus, Mountenbourg, Derecta, and Australia. I thank them all and Britain thanks them. It is in times when one feels most dark that the bonds of friendship prevail. The Secret Intelligence Service, Secret Service, and GCHQ are working together with our partners across Europe to sort out where these Kaasians came from in the failed state, and just what exactly is waiting in the dark ruins of that country. Yesterday was a dark day. Three men wielding firearms illegally arrived in one of the busiest intersections in London and Europe, filled with tourists, ordinary people...and unleashed carnage and devastation. As we clean up from the shootings and the suicide bombing at Piccadilly Circus, we mourn our dead and come together as one United Kingdom to heal.

    We know the identity of one, Marcus Jones, who lived in Dromund Kaas after the EMP strike and was hardened by the ideology of the Dark State. Two more joined him identifying themselves as Darth Chard and Darth Lod....aliases. The Sith ideology that lives deep in Dromund Kaas is a poisonous one, and is the result of a failed state that was once a threat to Europe now overthrown by Angleric, Duxburian, Ruhr, and British support in 2011. We have reached out to the Governments of Angleter, Derecta, and Miraco to make arrangements for their citizens and the families of those citizens that were killed in the terror attack in London yesterday. 

    Let me make the position of the Government clear: this Government will not stand by idly and allow terrorists to burrow deep into a lost country and attack Britain or her allies without swift condemnation and action. I have informed our representative at the European Union that we must bring this to the European Council and coordinate action across Europe once we have even more details. This Government will also continue to vet and take in Kaasian refugees. As a bastion of freedom and democracy, the United Kingdom must lead by example and take in its fair share of the most vulnerable in Europe. 

    We will also continue to live our lives in defiance of these acts. When a group resorts to this sort of terrorism, they try to intimidate and strike fear in the hearts of the citizens of that country. But we know in Britain that when tragedy strikes, we mourn, heal and then continue with the stiff upper lip that has defined generations of people on this island. The United Kingdom will endure, as will the rest of Europe and all of us will be united in stamping out the scourge that is terrorism. We thank our friends in Europe, and we take comfort in the knowledge that Britain is not alone.

    The Foreign and Commonwealth Office will continue to brief Europe on progress in the investigation, and I will deliver updates as necessary as well. 

    Thank you

    The Rt. Hon. Theresa May, MP

    Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain

    London Under Attack

    LONDON --- Terror has struck the heart of Central London as many fled from Piccadilly Circus this afternoon. At around 4 pm, three gunmen opened fire on unsuspecting tourists and Londoners. Panic ensued as one of the gunmen, identified as Kaasian refugee Marcus Jones, took hostages in a nearby Boots. The standoff was short as authorities quickly swooped in to solve the situation, only to see the Boots explode and become engulfed in flames, killing all of the hostages and the gunman inside. The other two gunmen were killed in exchanges with the Metropolitan Police. During all of this, a van went on a rampage down Oxford Street, only being stopped when the van crashed into a fixture. The capital was brought to a standstill as streets were shut down and motorways advising against travelling into London. 

    The Prime Minister and the Government are still acting with MI5 and MI6 to mitigate terrorist threats in the United Kingdom. She laid out the case for Britain to continue to be strong in the face of terrorism in a speech outside of Downing Street late in the evening. 

    "The United Kingdom is strong because of its resilient people, and our beliefs in our freedoms. These cowardly attacks cannot take away the strength of the British people or its allies in its pursuit of its missions and defends its interests. To our Kaasian friends who have called the United Kingdom home...we understand that not all of you are of the same twisted ideology that has guided these terrorists. We welcome you to our country and the Government will continue to accept and vet refugees from Dromund Kaas," Theresa May said on the steps of Downing Street. 

    The toll has risen to 100 people killed from the attack in such a densely populated area, and about 200 injured across London's hospitals. 5 of the people killed were of Derectan heritage, 2 from Angleter, and 1 from Miraco.

    Good evening:

    Many people across the United Kingdom are shocked and appalled by the clear act of terrorism which has occurred in the streets of London today. 3 gunmen and a van driver unleashed fear upon unsuspecting victims of an international make up. As of now, 50 people have been killed an nearly 200 injured. The explosion at a Boots pharmacy has claimed the lives of merely 35 hostages. All 4 assailants are dead. All 4 came from Dromund Kaas as refugees. 

    This cowardly act may cause Britain to mourn her lost, but she is a strong country. The strength of our principles and diversity is great, and we and our allies will not stand and allow terrorism to win.

    The wail of the sirens of ambulances and police cars clouded the hearing of Officer Joe Stevens, having arrived earlier at the scene of the impending situation. Commissioner Johnson returned to him as he guided some civilians away from the area.

    "They were refugees," Commissioner Johnson said to Officer Stevens.

    "What?" Joe gasped. 

    "The four suspects were refugees from Dromund Kaas, Sith followers and committed to punishing the United Kingdom for re-entering the conflict on behalf of the now defunct nation," Commissioner Johnson explained. "It's a terrorist attack, and they're trying to scare the UK into pulling out of helping Angleter and the Duxburian Union on the issue. 

    For a while, nothing was said as the chaos began to calm down a bit as the situation sounded as if it was grinding to a halt.

    Joe didn't know what to say; he hadn't an opinion on the Dromund Kaas conflict; it was so far away from Britain that he didn't think any consequence would blowback. No one he knew thought that. Indeed, during the Commons debate that crept into the dead of night last year, there was no sign from the MPs that they thought the issue would result in something like this coming to Britain. 

    Even though the Government had raised the terror level....he imagined it would go back down. After all, the Crusaders that caused the the 7/22 bombings were a distant memory. 

    'What will we do now?' Joe thought as he watched the SFO's sweep the Boots and get the hostages out. He turned his back, fortunate that there were no shots, only to be horrified by the explosion that followed.

    "What are we dealing with?" the Prime Minister asked. COBRA was not something she looked forward to using, and it was the first time in her tenure as Prime Minister that she's had to use it at all. 

    "Prime Minister, the Metropolitan Police have found that there are three shooters in London. One has taken 20 hostages in a Boots next to Piccadilly Circus. One has been killed in pursuit from Piccadilly towards the Thames. There's still one more unaccounted for and the police are still looking for that shooter across Central London. The vehicle driver has also mowed over several pedestrians and tried to go down the pedestrian areas of Oxford Street," the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis, Cressida Dick, told the Prime Minister, the Home Secretary and several other ministers.

    "Well, at least we raised the terror threat level before this happened," Home Secretary Amber Rudd groaned. "This is a gigantic mess."

    "Amber, I don't want to hear it," the Prime Minister snapped. "You had your opportunity to get a raid in and you didn't take it. It's my turn to take over now." The Home Secretary was suspiciously silent after that. 

    "Prime Minister, I think the best course of action is to get in contact with our sister security agencies across Europe and figure out if this was a threat from outside the United Kingdom and where it could strike next," Foreign Secretary Stephen Crabb explained. 

    "I will put you in charge of that, Stephen," the Prime Minister responded. "Get MI6 on it; Amber, you do the same for MI5. Cressida, I want you to take whatever steps necessary to get this situation under control. We need to put all NHS hospitals in London under crisis footing as well. I will get on the phone with Chris; we need people to avoid London right now."

    "Prime Minister," the assembled responded. Immediately, the parties were on their phones getting things to happen.

    "Joe!" Commander Dan Johnson yelled to one of his officers. The scene at Piccadilly was thrown into pure chaos. Tourists and citizens screaming as they ran in every which direction while the health services pulled away some people who had been hit with bullets. 

    "Commander," Joe replied, having weaved his way to the Commander. "What's the situation?"

    "Active shooters...they're sending in the SFO and AFO to deal with this. The AFV's are coming as well. We think there are four locations in the area that the shooters have either taken hostages or have decided to camp out. We have to be careful," Commander Johnson responded. "It's full crisis situation the likes of which we haven't seen in London. I've already gotten word that we could have a death toll in the hundreds when this is all done, since we don't have any ID on who or any locations beyond knowing there's at least one in that Boots over there."

    "Shit, mate...." Joe gasped. 

    "Alright, we've got to get over to the Boots and handle the situation," Commander Johnson ordered, smacking Joe on the shoulder. "Quick sticks!"

    "Going to lunch, eh?" said Jess Phillips, SDP MP to one of her colleagues on the Government benches. The girl nodded her head and took off in the other direction, hoping to catch up to a couple of the Outer Ministry secretaries. "Oh well...bye, I guess...." 

    Jess walked down the street past the statue of Winston Churchill, the dominant bulldog of British politics during the early to mid 20th century. He glowered down at her as if trying to tell her something. She simply shrugged it off as her own brain playing tricks while hopping into her taxi. 

    "Thanks mate...I'm meeting someone at Piccadilly Circus," Jess said to the driver. She noticed somebody waving her off on the side. "Wait, hold on a minute."

    "If we don't get going, I'm gonna charge you by the minute," the driver muttered. Jess paid no mind to the driver. She saw Dawn Butler running up to her.

    "Jess, don't go yet!" Dawn replied. She looked different. Something was wrong. 

    "Dawn, what's going on?" asked Jess. Her face quickly turned from bored to concerned. 

    "There's an incident going on at Piccadilly!" Dawn replied.
