WORLD WATCHES IN HORROR AS NORWEGIAN MAGICAL SECURITY BREACH MAKES MUGGLE NEWS
It was a scene of carnage and shock today as rumors began swirling via muggle television broadcasts that a strange creature had made its way into the city of Tromsø, where it began what seemed to be a senseless attack on the city and its residents. Hit Wizards and Magical Creature Regulation Officials from the Scandinavian Wizardthing were on the spot as quickly as possible to identify the Norwegian Frost Troll of nearly 15 feet (4.57 meters) in height. As frost trolls are more resistant to charms than their British counterparts, it was nearly thirty minutes before the troll was able to be subdued, long enough for it to cause the deaths of three Norwegians and injure several more as it permanently shattered the stained glass windows at Tromsø's famed Arctic Cathedral with at least a hundred muggles in sight.
Magical security officials are currently holding a global summit to discuss the next steps in addressing this tragedy, but results may not come soon enough. With the advent of muggle technology, this story has spread on a global scale. It is currently believed that the Scandinavian Wizardthing will be explaining the incident as promotion for a muggle film, but more details will be available as they develop.
DUE TO RECENT EVENTS ALL MAGICAL TRAVEL TO NORWAY HAS BEEN SUSPENDED.
Heightened security will now be in effect, including anti-apparation enchantments at all borders. All magical rail routes passing into Norway, Knight Bus extended journeys, and international floo connections have been suspended until such time as Norwegian officials can discover the source or cause of the troll attack. Additionally, all wizards are encouraged to exercise caution while entering muggle areas, especially in northern regions. If you see something strange, please report it to the Ministry of Magic immediately.
