Sabulum conflict unchanged
Sabulum remains the focal point of the growing conflict - physical and political - between the clans and the Omni-Tek Corporation. The city is now evenly divided between the two occupying forces.

Both Omni-Tek and Council sources now report that Sabulum - a small town in the perpetual wastelands that has become the focal point for a growing conflict between Omni-Pol and Omni-AF led troops and a number of clans - has been partitioned, unofficially, between clan and OT forces.
Locals remain anxious about the presence of both contingents, although the situation does appear, for the time being, to be under control. Yesterday's visit by the ICC was conducted in relative peace, and the Confederation is expected to make a statement - including, sources say, recommendations to both Omni-Tek and the Council of Truth – in a few days time, after meeting with officials on both sides.
The conflict over Sabulum began when Omni-Pol launched an allegedly lawful police action in the city to root out suspected criminals and terrorists thought to use the city as a base of operations. There has been no word yet as to whether or not any suspects have been apprehended, although the operation has been continuously interrupted by armed hostilities, prompting Omni-Pol to call on the Omni-Tek Armed Forces for backup and support.
While small fights are still erupting within Sabulum's city-limits, and tensions remain high, the current partitioning of the city appears to be keeping both sides in check while Omni-Pol continues - and eventually concludes - its operations there.
