flooded with *calls* from citizens.

Yes nice work Sauron... you basically typed the whole document out so no one has to squint again.

What stands out in these reports are the numbers of witnesses. The UFO in Iran was seen by two different pilots in two different airplanes. The UFO (in Slovakia) was obviously witnessed by many if the newspaper was "flooded with calls."
