NEW YORK (AP). The mutant nation of Genosha was decimated at approximately 9:00 AM (2:00 AM EST) by several rogue Sentinels in what the United Nations has acknowledged as a deliberate and fatal attack by one or more anti-mutant terrorist groups.
The UN has reported that the attack has so far left no survivors and that the death toll has reached an estimate of 10,000 Genoshan citizens. The attack began shortly after 7:00 AM (12:00 AM EST) upon the unsuspecting population and lasted nearly two hours.
It is unclear if Genoshan president and former pro-mutant terrorist Erik Lensherr (mutant alias Magneto) escaped before the final blow.
Many superpowered teams and agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and its British counterpart S.T.R.I.K.E. are currently involved in cleaning up the wreckage and helping any survivors at ground zero.
