"Well, Kingsley saved us. Thanks to his warning most of the wedding guests were able to Disapparate before [the Death Eaters] arrived ... There were about a dozen of them, but they didn’t know you were there, Harry. Arthur heard a rumor that they tried to torture your whereabouts out of Scrimgeour before they killed him; if it’s true, he didn’t give you away."

-- Remus Lupin, talking about the attack on the Burrow (DH11)

Death Eaters take over the Ministry of Magic. Scrimgeour, according to reports, dies under torture, refusing to tell the whereabouts of Harry Potter (DH11).
