2947-09-02 – Announcement: All Cosmic Background Personnel Safe After Yaxkin City Blast
To all who have sent this network concerned and well-wishing notes in the past few hours, we are happy to announce that all of our staff and personalities have reported in and are safe.
Sovanna Rostami and two producers were in the city conducting an interview not far from the epicenter, and were shaken but uninjured. Two of our studio technicians were in town for the day on other business, and neither was closer than three kilometers from the affected area.
As an update on the incident, the blast which rocked Yaxkin City here on Planet at Centauri is still being investigated, but the fact that it took place in the government center only a few blocks from the Confederated Congress office complex suggests that it was meant as political terrorism, but we are not aware of any political figures injured or killed.
Dedicated Centauri news outlets will have complete coverage of this disaster. Our datasphere outreach hub is currently hosting links to several sources we recommend. Prayers and well-wishing are to be extended to the injured and to the families of those killed.
