The sound of quick steps rang down the hallway. A shadow ran by the sea blue walls inlaid with gold naga decorated with fake paintings, a faint echo of Mandura's past. Reya stopped at a tray with three jade rings. That looks good, I'll take it she thought sliding the rings onto her fingers, the preceded to enter the next rooms. The rooms were dotted with lights from down below of the bustling Yangkorn market at the center of Mandura city. The next rooms had statues of Nian dynasty in Rhava, the statues stripped of the materials past all recognition, another faint echo of the two Alharun nation's histories. This room had a higher ceiling, with a glass dome stained with green and dark brown colors from soot that had started clinging to it after decades of not being cleaned. The palms rustled outside the transparent dome, waving in the wind and scratching the surface of the buildings. In this hallway there was only one painting. The painting was surrounded by a dirt covered seal of plexiglass. around the exhibit was a moat of clear water dotted with lily pads and lotus flowers. Reya slid off her mud soaked sandals as she entered the room, glancing over at the mural. She walked towards the exhibit and knelt next to the water. She cupped the cold water in her hands and trickled the water on her face and hair, and raised her palms in reverence. Then from her bag, she took out some incense and lit it, as well as leaving fresh mangoes and longan. She then jumped over the moat landing soundlessly, and wiped off the dirt revealing a picture of Nayasarri, Reya's great great grandmother, and symbol of rebellion in the eastern Alharun isles. It was common for the people of Mandura to come here and pray to the painting, and though foreigners thought this was weird, it was a symbol of reverence to Nayasarri from the people. As quickly as she came, she leaped back over the moat and slid on her sandals. There it was. Her target. At the back of the next room, lay a sapphire, the size of a monkeys head. The room was colored blue and there was a windowed dome at the top. A gold naga crisscrossed the room, each scale a separate chunk of gold dug up right there on Mandura. She took out a small pouch from her bag, and opened it to reveal pale chalk dust. She blew the dust into the room, revealing almost unseeable ropes, that if tripped would set off every alarm. She slowly walked through the room, jumping over and sliding under the transparent tope, as grainy chalk sprinkled down onto the floor of the room. She arrived at the end of the room, and walked over to the glass, and took off the entire box, lodging it in her armpit. Reya briddled with annoyance. It was a fake, a ball of thick blue material. A shadow moved above her. She glanced up to see a shadow holding her sapphire. The figure spotted her, and saluted her, the figure then jumped off the side of the building. The thunder rumbled shaking the entire building. Reya chuckled.
"If its a chase you want, then I wont loose" Reya voiced. She launched her grappling hook into the sky shattering the dome and clinging on to the rim, she let the glass box fall triggering the alarm. She smirked as the guards came into the room to see her calling guard painted into the ground, a monkey baring its teeth, and as the guards looked up she waved and then leaped off the dome following the figure.

SERIAL KILLER IN PALYASHIA & ONGOING APSANA CONFLICT |
СЕРЯЛАВ ОМЕРЕР ПАЛЯШУЛУСДУ & САЯАХЙИВ КОНФЛИКТ АПШАНАН
Since the last two months a series of disapearences and a few murders of Apsan minorities within the city of Argashina and the surounding area of Palyashia have occured.
This isn't the first time such a thing has occured, It's suspected that an ultra-nationalist Palyashi male is responcible for all the cases, Police aren't sure who that may be, but a few suspects are being put under investigation, if you are an Apsan in the Argashinä municipality of Palyashia, the authoroties suggest you arm yourself with a pocket knife when going out at late hours and/or going to self defence classes and if posible travle in gorups.
A total of 30 people of Apsan decent have gone mising and at least 5 were found dead in the past 2 months, most victims seem to be females of age 20-30 and elderly people who live alone or in poor neighborhoods. Dead bodies where found in Maçar river neer the city, Police have been send on patrols a month ago, but only rebelious teenagers were found neer the river. From the information gathered by the authoroties, the Victims don't seem to be related to any crime organization or in any sort of blood feud, but all of them had at least one Apsan parent.
4 other disapearences were reported in the neighboring municipality of Gëldere, the Ministar of Defence, Yuis Eşçince, has sent armed patrol squads from the military to help police in both municipalities, which may seem extreme to some, the parliament says they are trying to keep racial crimes to a minimum so their are acting almost imidietly.
There is at least 1 person involved, though some eye-witnesses say they've seen a group of 3-4 men doing suspicious activities in areas of reported cases.
Sadly the law enforcement within the municipality is weak compared to other regions, as was noted before, if you are of Apsan decent, get armed and/or go to self defence classes and try to travle in groups.
It has been reported that some worried residents have taken matters within their own hands and have set up traps for the coulprits, and groups of people have been going out on hunts for them too.
Police say the groups going out would be fined if seen, but they won't discourage it.
There are still reports of mild genocide on the border between Mokhavia and the self proclaimed 'Republic of Apsana', the Government has sent armed forces convoys to support the law enforcment in the borderlands and prefent more crime. Currently the general situation with the 'Republic of Apsana' is on a standby, anti-Apsan crimes have seen a major rise in the past month, the Prime Minister and President of Apsana are scheduling peace talks in the next months. Meanwhile the governers of the borderlands are ashamed of their people. Not much else has been released on the issue.

Electrical towers and networks to be upgraded and extended in the Southern province of Vörsa--
The Province of Vörsa, a major supplier of food and grains to the Central Granaries, is an important province, both economically and socially, but unfortunately it faces chronic power outages due to unfavourable conditions and outdated infrastructure, and has continued for a long time, i.e for nearly 2 years, until yesterday, when the Deputy chairman of the Red Brigade of the Central Beareu of The Democratic Republic of Velaheria, Mr.Röbert Fjörd, himself was sent by the party to organise the extension, repair and upgrading of the electrical networks in the province.
He said to the native people present there that, the networks would be repaired as soon as possible and the extension of the networks would start from the next week, The Current Situation would also be made less severe by upgrading the power grids which would increase the power outputs and would reduce chronic blackouts by 60%, The Extension and upgrades, would be made by keeping the party's decision of lowering power blackouts and increasing civillian power sourcing all across Vörsa in mind.
Irrigation systems would also be upgraded to increase the total area of land irrigated by the irrigation pumps, which would in turn increase the amount of grains cultivated in that area in the following years.
