ITU officer: Were undersea cables sabotaged?

More than two weeks after the last of five undersea cable cuts occurred, an official from the International Telecommunications Union said the possibility of sabotage can't be ruled out. ITU head of development Sami al Murshed made the comment, though he also noted the formal investigation had not yet concluded. One of the cable cuts has been traced to the dragging anchor of a large ship, but some observers have questioned that finding, while the causes of the other cuts that happened around the same time frame have remained a mystery.
