Internet traffic in Egypt is severed, CNN reports.

CDG is affected in two ways.

We can confirm that:

- Regular users are no longer able to log in.
- Several of our main sources, hosted on servers in Egypt are down.

Egypt's internet network only has about 10 companies controlling the key infrastructure that keeps the country connected, making a nationwide government-mandated cutoff feasible.

GOOD GRIEF, THIS IS HORRIBLE!!
I HOPE WHEN ALL THE TURMOIL CLEARS, IF IT CLEARS THAT THE SYSTEM WILL BE ABLE TO RETURN TO SOME KIND OF NORMAL. WILL THIS CAUSE A PERMANENT PROBLEM IN THE SYSTEM? OR IS THIS TEMPORARY? I DO HAVE TO SAY THAT ON A LESS SERIOUS NOTE THE LINK YOU GAVE.....THE CNN WRITER (mark m. ) OF THAT ARTICLE IS SUPER, LIKE, CUTE!
