Can the facts be verified?


Due to the time-limited nature of news articles, every piece of information in a Wikinews article must be referenced and verifiable.
Wikinews:Cite sources

Since Wikinews is an online news source that anyone can contribute to, for content to be published on Wikinews, it must be verifiable, which means that people reading the article can check the sources used and trust that the facts were correct at the time of publishing because some one else other than the reporter verified them by checking the sources.
