Quebecshire City, Parliament ADN Émeric Boudreaux: As many have noticed, there was a brief naval altercation eleven nautical miles northwest of Portsmouth this afternoon. A previously unidentified ship now confirmed to have been of Morovan origin travelled in international waters for some time, aware of the presence of the Portsmouth detachment. It is possible that they attempted to communicate with our fleet, but were unable to do so because of the closed communications line.
After several minutes of the ships moving along the international boundary, they moved inwards, one mile into Quebecshirite territorial waters. At this point, the Portsmouth detachment's commanding officer made the decision to take action against the ship, as it was encroaching on Quebecshirite territory and mutual communication had not been made.
We are currently unsure of the ship's purpose. We are investigating if the Morovan government had any involvement, as it is unlikely a ship carrying that many people was fueled and staffed to make it this far if it was not sponsored by a government or corporation. Currently, the death toll stands at 2,300. We have no intention to indict nor court-martial any members of the Grand Navy. Thank you for your time.
The Constitutional Republic of Zion The United Republicof Eminople puts out an official statement on what has happened between Quebecshire and Morova Statement: "Eminople sends its condolences to the families who have lost its loved ones in the incident that had occured yesterday. Despite Quebecshire killing more than 2,000 innocent people, they are not completely in the wrong and shouldn't pay the reparations that Morova is demanding. The ship had entered into Quebecshire waters and had not contacted the Quebecshire government. Without the benefit of hindsight Quebecshire had to do what was necessary which was to protect their nation."
