Square Enix Set For E3 2018 Announcements
And the team at People Can Fly have a AAA game set to be published by Square Enix that we know nothing about at this point. Also in the world of RPGs, we've got Final Fantasy VII Remake, which has also been in development for an eternity.

Reaction Unit SA said witnesses told them three men armed with knives and guns had attacked the mosque, attacking the victims, and setting the building alight. A section of the mosque was set ablaze and smoke was billowing from the side of the building, Balram said.

Speaking further, the representative noted that there had already been theft and robbery incidents at the mosque before. "I do not think we should jump to conclusions that this attack is motivated by sectarianism", Haseen told Voice of the Cape. There have been some Islamophic attacks on South African mosques in the past, but few have been as violent as the one that took place Thursday. "Speculation about the motive is quite risky at this point".

"They allegedly attacked three people and stabbed them. We want our communities to live in harmony, practicing their religions without fear".
