Reliance Globalcom says the severing of their internet cables in January and February of this year is most likely coincidental, although it still isn't fully explained. Satellite imagery of two merchant vessels places them at the scenes of two of the underwater cuttings.

The ships, one a Korean vessel and one Iraqi, have been detained for the past couple months in Dubai as everything gets worked out. The Korean ship was recently released after its owner paid a $60,000 fine, but the Iraqi ship is in a bit more hot water. Each of the sailors may be hauled into court although it's unclear why the Iraqi's are being treated so differently.

Internet service has since been restored to the region, which means they can all get back to their obsessive reading of this blog.
