Images: Cut cable creates computer chaos

Soldiers fill up an Internet café on Forward Operating Base Kalsu, Jan. 31. The SpaWare system the Internet café runs on is unaffected by the break in Internet cable lines in a major commercial undersea segment somewhere between Egypt and France. The cables provide Internet and other electronic data distribution for a majority of African and Middle East countries, including Egypt, India and Iraq. They should be repaired in seven to 10 days.
