Cable Cutting UAE

Now we have some explanation for the internet failures we have faced over the past couple of months from one area to another. Hopefully no more cables will be cut any time soon.

Turns out the United Arab Emirates took two ships into custody on February 19th after those infamous cable cuttings. Wayward anchors are suspected to be at fault, and the Korean company responsible for one of the vessels just agreed to fork over 60 grand in damages in exchange for the release of its ship. The other ship, which is owned by an Iraqi company, is still under Dubai custody, and the two sailors on board were arrested and are awaiting prosecution next week. As for us, we’re standing by our space aliens in league with garden gnomes theory. It all just adds up.
