Explosions at Kashani Manufacturies - Death Tolls Possibly in the Hundreds

Only moments ago, as many as six explosions ripped through Kashani Manufacturies facilities on Ganymede. Ganymede officials are confirming the incident and are saying that they believe this is the result of an accident within the facility's labs. Communications with the damaged portions of the facilities has yet to be established, so the extent of the damage is currently unknown. However it is currently believed that portions have been opened to vacuum, potentially leaving hundreds dead.

Kashani Manufacturies Explosions More Severe Than Origially Thought

As information is gathered, the initial reports of the extent of the damage seems to have been underestimated. Orbital imagery obtained by Ganymede officials shows cratering which completely annihilated entire sections of the facility. This imagery has not been released to the public.

The death toll estimate has been adjusted to between five hundred and a thousand.

As the Corvus arrived at Hell Hole today, several local news reports speculate about a rumored battle at UE-allied Vita Isabella between UE and rebel forces. Rebel forces have apparently attacked the colony, unprovoked, dealing a heavy blow to UE ships in the process. Details are difficult to make out among all the rumors, but apparently while UE losses were high, civilian losses at the colony were low. Among the rumors are that the target seems to have been Vita Isabella shipyards, which were apparently on contract to replace recent UE ship losses.
