EVENT 001. || 1st N O V E M B E R 1 9 7 6 || HOGSMEADE ATTACK
EXTRACT FROM THE DAILY PROPHET | “In the afternoon hours of November 1st, reports came that the Scottish village of Hogsmeade was under attack from the terrorist organisation calling themselves Death Eaters. Multiple businesses were victims of arson and burned to the ground, and Aurors suspect Giant involvement. Fatalities currently number at twenty and counting, with St Mungo’s overflowing with trauma patients. On the day, students from Hogwarts School were visiting on a weekend outing, with some minors still reported as missing. Earlier today, a wizard calling himself Lord Voldemort, claiming to be leader of the Death Eater terrorist organisation, claimed responsibility for the attacks, citing "a necessary purge and call to wizards everywhere of the filth populating our society”. Anyone with information on either Lord Voldemort or the Death Eaters is urged to come forward. Villagers are currently being questioned. Neither local business holders nor Hogwarts officials were available for comment. “
