BANGLADESH today launched a nationwide investigation after the country's entire Internet link was put down for the day by a mystery man with a pair of scissors.
Apparently, important cables were cut twice last week as well, which caused huge problems to the country's businesses.
Bangladesh Telephone and Telegraph Board manager Ziaur Rashid Sofder is on the case, AFP reports, saying that an investigation is taking place with "high priority."
It's not the first time cables have been cut - last October there was a similar attack. Sofder and his cohorts are taking matters"very seriously" because it was a "really big sabotage," he says.
The assailants of last year's attack claimed that someone had given them money to cut the cables, but police are still baffled as to who.
Today's attack well and truly screwed up Bangladesh, says Azahar Chowdhury, the vice president of Internet Service Providers of Bangladesh, saying that the sabotage stopped all Internet use and international calls for most of the day. µ
