Prophet reporter attacked offices ransacked

Mere hours after the story about the missing Gryffindor boy's return hit newsstands, the Daily Prophet offices were ransacked by a few masked men seeking the boy's whereabouts. When one of the reporters working on the story refused to reveal his sources or any information on the boy, he was swiftly struck with a sectumsempra curse and left for dead. The custodian found him lying in a pool of blood. After a short stint in St. Mungos, our reporter is now home and taking a short holiday.

In a releated story,Gryffindor girl, Tamara Scorbal, has returned to Hogwarts after a short-lived, yet traumatic ordeal over her exchange for Hogwarts head girl, Anquvin Aluveaux. Our sources tell us the scene in Godric's Hollow was tense but that Miss Aluveaux handled herself in a manner that makes one think of The great Harry Potter in facing evil.
The culprit was taken into custody by the Head of the DLME Bella Giustizia.

Muggles unsafe

Muggles unsafe in wizarding communities By Lerna Lemonut

Godricks Hallow-In recent months there have been an increase in the amount of muggle attacks in wizarding communities. In the last three months twelve muggles have been attacked leading to the death of three. Witnesses state a lone witch or wizard in robes is responsible for the attacks on the innocent muggles.
“It is clearly an attack based on the hate of muggles.” Stated a source in the ministry who requested to remain unnamed. “The ministry is aware of the situation and has taken steps to protect unsuspecting muggles.”
Details are sketchy about the attacks but reports have stated unforgivable curses were used to torture the victims.
The ministry claims they have no suspects and are seeking assistance from anyone who may have knowledge the attacks.

The Daily prophet would like to appoligize to the Liberation of Romanian Cooperatvie for using the wrong name it the reacent article about Elmira Babbage. They are not The RLC or the RLA but the LRC. We are sorry for any confusion.

Reported by Willam Dashspear

Elmira Babbage, reported missing in mid-January, has at last resurfaced, much to the relief of family and friends. Originally traveling to Romania to visit her owl pal, Petra, Elmira tells us she happened to stumble across the Romanian Liberation Cooperative in the middle of a rescue operation, and was so impressed with the work they were doing that she decided to join them in their mission. She returned to the UK last Thursday and has established a group for those witches and wizard who also wish to lend their support to the RLC's noble cause. Interested parties may contact Elmira by owl.

In other news, Romanian Ministry officials walked out of talks with the RLC after the RLC claimed their Ministry of Magic attacked one of the towns they have been trying to protect.

We asked Elmira her opinion of the Romanian Ministry's recent walkout. "I was hopeful at the announcement that talks were forthcoming. I'm appalled that the Romanian Ministry would try to attack an RLC area right before the meeting. I wouldn't be surprised if they had an extremist or two within their ranks that did this. The time has come for the international magical community to stand up and be counted. That's why I started the group I have. We need to speak out so that the Romanian Ministry or the ICW will pay attention."

OBITUARY Gwen Weezles

Reported by staff:

Muggle wife of the renowned retired potions master and magical arachnologist mentioned in Great Wizards of the 20th Century, Aaraneus Weezles', died suddenly and unexpectedly late last Tuesday evening. Gwen was 89. Her son - auror, Alan Weezles, Order of Merlin First Class - preceded Gwen in death. Survivors include devoted husband, Aaraneus - daughter-in-law, Anna - and grandson, Aaran. Torquay Funeral Services conducted a private muggle service for the Weezles family Saturday afternoon in Devon.

Though Gwen was a muggle, she was part of a very noble and well-respected wizard family. Her husband, Aaraneus, is most famous for his discovery that marinating toad liver with purified Black Widow's venom aided in the healing of spattergoit. He authored several texts on the proper care and handling of spiders for magical purposes before his premature retirement. Her son, Alan, fought bravely against five Death Eaters in the final moments of his life, enduring hours of being cruciated and imperiused before finally succumbing to the Killing Curse after they realized he would never provide the information they sought. Ministry officials unanimously decided to award him the Order of Merlin First class posthumously after reviewing the memories retrieved from the only witness, his son, Aaran. Gwen's daughter-in-law, Anna, was a respected investigative journalist for the Daily Prophet who retired after her husband's death, but has since returned to us.

We asked Aaraneus why he left the wizarding world, his answer: "For love." He refused to comment upon his future plans or whether he planned to return to the wizarding world now that his muggle wife was no longer with us. Daughter-in-law, Anna Weezles, has taken a short leave of absence from the Prophet in this time of loss.

We at the Prophet extend our most heartfelt condolences to the Weezles family, and we are sure our readers do as well.

Romanian Liberation Cooperative

reported by Anna Weezles

The Romanian Liberation Association has changed its name to the Liberation of Romania Cooperative, since the numerous negative Ministry references to their coalition had people thinking the A in RLA stood for Army. The LRC has asked that we make clear the point that they are the ones pushing for talks, not the Romanian Ministry.
In the past week, three groups have openly supported the LRC: the Society for the Support of Squibs, the Society for the Reformation of Hags, and the Society for the Tolerance of Vampires. Each have written in to the Prophet to express their appreciation for all the LRC is and has been doing for the welfare of their respective kinds.
In other news, the tiny country of Liechtenstein joins Moldova, Slovenia, Mont Negro, and The Former Yugoslavia Republic of Macedonia in withdrawing from the ICW until the Romanian Ministry is held accountable for its actions.
