An explosion ripped through a government building in the capital of Ianic this morning, destroying the building and killing 32.  A further 120 were injured and taken to hospital for treatment; 12 of those died in traffic accidents on the way.

The Jonkeereen separatist group Urban Desert Army claimed responsibility for the blast, and said that further acts of terrorism would continue until a Bureau for Jonkeereen Affairs was established.

A spokesman for the political organization Jonkeereen Rights Party denied any connection with the UDA, and condemned the terrorists.  Their leader Armis Kowrollian  is currently offworld, presenting a Petition for Imperial Intervention to the Archduke on behalf of the JRP.
