The beginnings of the holidays are a joyous day for most students and their families, but for some in Hogsmeade this week it turned into a day of terror. Reports indicate that a group led by the famous German dark wizard Adelwald Kriegsbruder attacked Auror Bannon Bates, another ministry official, and two Hogwarts students yesterday on the path between Hogwarts and Hogsmeade. Witnesses from the Hogwarts gates and in Hogsmeade report seeing an enormous snake, said to be made of Fiendfyre, attacking a mounted hippogriff in the sky. Numerous witnesses also report flashing lights and sounds suggestive of magical combat.

Ministry officials report that the attack was defeated with no harm came to the victims. After the attack was thwarted, Auror Bates tracked Kriegsbruder to a warehouse in London. Even before M.L.E. reinforcements could arrive, Auror Bates proceeded to fight his way past Kriegsbruder's followers, and then defeat Kriegsbruder himself in a reportedly spectacular duel which left the warehouse barely standing.

Kriegsbruder, and his surviving followers, have been incarcerated in Azkaban.
