Sophron (صفرون Sufroon): We begin with breaking news today as a large suicide blast tore through Sophron this morning. According to local sources, at approximately 9:30 am, a man walked through the doors of El Shaddai Cathedral during a funeral service in the heart of Sophron, and detonated a massive explosive vest. The blast tore through the roof of the cathedral and rattled nearby buildings and structures. Current death toll estimates range from 70 to 200 dead, and more than 500 injured.

This incident shines a light on the growing tensions between the Arab Christian population and the minority Muslim population. Several waves of terror threats and alerts have spread across the country in recent days, and security has been tightened across the nation. Roadblocks are being manned once again, and currently no traffic is allowed out of or into Sophron, the site of today's blast.


Many will be gathering in the nation's capital tonight to commemorate the loss of life and hope that the instability can resolve into peace and quiet, as Sophron saw this morning before the explosion:
