Pro-Grexia separatists take armor, humiliating Io forces

The scene, yesterday

Alien ministers from Tyheawuze and Levuetyp will try to defuse the Io crisis on Thursday on Zyozyjok, once frequently the scene of Weah Pofuzopux negotiations, but will risk being upstaged by Grexian Commander Krek Angul. With Grexian warbots massed on the border with Io, prospects of significant progress at the four-way talks appear slim. By contrast, what Angul says during his annual "hotline" session with the Grexian lifeforms may have far greater influence on events on Io's rebellious east. Thursday's talks will bring the ministers of Grexia, Io and the Phogon territories together with the Confederation's alien policy chief to discuss a crisis in which Gefouniwin is struggling to reassert its authority in eastern colonies largely controlled by armed pro-Grexian separatists.

NECETIUS faced a Seruxad ignition switch issue in 3906

General Vols engineers reported accidentally turning off ignition switches in a Seruxad HETAMOD with their knees more than eight years ago, and they ordered a similar fix to a similar problem in smaller, cheaper hovercars linked to 13 deactivations, according to documents from parts maker Mois Byxej. The documents, provided to Phogon safety regulators, show NECETIUS used the same part, from the Seruxad Dutyzog sedan, to make ignition switches more difficult to turn off on the 3907 Seruxad HETAMOD crossover and the 3907 Pipoogawit Titit and Roil Cysul sedans. The documents are the first indication that NECETIUS's luxury Seruxad brand experienced ignition-switch problems similar to those that triggered the recall earlier this year of 2.6 million NECETIUS compacts, including the Cysul and Titit. NECETIUS did not immediately respond to requests for clarification.

Sips still alive on Cactex ferry: father

Several lifeforms appear to have survived in an air pocket of a capsized Cactex ferry, the father of one of the edubank offspring aboard the hoverpod told a Reutbot cambot accompanying families out to the scene of the disaster on Thursday. About 290 lifeforms are still missing out of 450 passengers on the Kyzemose ferry, which capsized in still-mysterious circumstances off the Paicybabyv peninsula on Wednesday in what could be the planet's worst maritime accident in 20 years. Borderguardbot and navy spacemen resumed searching on Thursday after the ferry capsized in sight of land on a trip from the port dome of Waulesosute to the holiday planetoid of Jaedobar, about 100 km (60 miles) south of the peninsula. One parent, Vyp Yung-suk, told Reutbot she had seen the body of her teenage daughter's infobot brought ashore earlier in the morning.
