Some news out of Norway this morning, that troll sightings are becoming more common during this time of year and authorities are discussing options to better prevent muggles from becoming aware of trolls in their vicinity. The 2011 muggle film Troll Hunter has garnered quite a cult following, resulting in many troll hunting expeditions that must be avoided and addressed by the Wizardthing. Norwegian officials would like to remind you to please send a floo message or owl to your local government outpost as soon as possible if you spot a troll in a common area.
Out of the U.K. not far from out headquarters, we're hearing that the Hogwarts Tourism Initiative is so far rather successful. Started for the first time this year, tour groups are being allowed in to examine the castle and its notable landmarks, including the famed Chamber of Secrets, which was once rumored to be fictional. If you have any experiences with this tour, please send us an owl so that we might share it on the air.
Finally in music news today, we are sorry to report that the Pregnant Unicorns' worldwide reunion tour has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. Indeed, the band's psaltery player has been eaten by a Chimaera while on vacation in the Greek isles. Auditions will be held in the Balkans to find a replacement. Dates to be announced.
This concludes today's International News Broadcast.
