Has cyber-terror reached new depths?

Fibre-optic cables carrying internet traffic are snapping all around the Middle East. The conspiracy theorists have started to point fingers at Islamic fundies. I wouldn't rule this out firstly because these cables are very strong and they don't just snap and secondly because I hate the fundies and I am always happy to put the blame on them.

Check out this cool graphic. I never knew that the whole world was physically connected with these cables. I wrongly thought internet traffic was mainly through satellites.


According to this, the two Alexandria cables were not ripped by ships, so is Al Qaeda going to claim responsibiity?
