Four undersea communications network cables have been cut this past week — they're part of the network that handles most of the world's voice and internet traffic. WTF's going on?
Most telecommunications experts and cable operators say that sabotage
seems unlikely, but no one knows what damaged the cables or whether
the incidents were related.
One theory – that a wayward ship traveling off course because of bad
weather was responsible for cutting the first two cables last week –
was dismissed by the Egyptian government over the weekend.
No ships passed the area in the Mediterranean where the cables were
located, the country's Ministry of Communications said Sunday.
UPDATE: The majority of BB readers who've commented on the story say, in summary, "my money's on monsters."
