Cable Cut Culprits Caught?

Dubai port authorities have impounded two ships, MV Hounslow and MT Ann, believed to be responsible for damage to undersea cables that saw India lose half of its Internet capacity earlier this year, according to India’s Hindu News. Conspiracy theories have flourished about the source of the cuts, which affected the undersea cable network of a Reliance Globalcom unit. Reliance fingered the two based on satellite footage of ship movement in the Mediterranean around that time. And while it’s not clear whether the two ships are behind the service interruption yet, even if they are, it probably won’t stop the speculation that surrounded the original break.
