Internet & Networking Though the cause is still unknown, three of the four undersea Internet cables that run from North America to Asia were cut, causing outages in Egypt, India, Saudi Arabia, and a dozen or so other countries. That is a lot of angry World of Warcraft players. It's supposed to have been from ships' anchors, though even two downed cables at one time is very rare, so who's to say it wasn't sabotage?

Sabotage?

I'd say it's too soon to start coming up with such inflammatory deductions until there's more evidence. Right now it's: "We don't know how it happened, but sometimes it's anchors." I think I'll stick with that answer until something else comes up.
