Ice Melt Reveals Texts
A small ice sheet melted at the foot of Everest. Two locals ventured into the cave and found ancient texts that upon investigation show to be from around the first wave of Buddhist monks to visit Tibet. The texts were translated in the Zhang Zhung language and were written in Pali. One text is believed to have come from Ephyral as the languages match up. The manuscripts are being further examined at the Potala Palace by a team of scholars and monks.
The search for bombing suspects in Ephyral has intensified with the suspects believed to have arrived in the country. Tibet has remained vigilant for suspects that may have fled to Tibet and has offered help to Ephyral investigators in hunting the suspects.
