Internet Weak, Strong

Pakistan’s Telecommunications Authority attempted to block the country’s route to YouTube Sunday, but ended up cutting off the entire world’s access: “The country ordered ISPs to block the video-sharing website because of content deemed offensive to Islam…The details of the “hijack” were leaked out into the wider internet from PCCW and as a result YouTube was mistakenly blocked by internet service providers around the world. The block on the servers was lifted once PCCW had been told of the issue by engineers at YouTube.” [BBC]
