    Come as is not a phrase, it is two separate words.
    If you break it up it might make more sense:
    Details (of ...) come as (it) prepares to (...) - So the information comes in at the same time as the city prepares.
    The details are of the killing of animals. The city is closing the markets.
    Does it make sense now?


    as gary says - try putting a comma or a mental pause between the two words ... but sometimes you can say 'come as you please' = 'come, but dress however you like'
