OK this is from a blog on Renesys site (The internet intelligence authority - apparently).
Not found any MSM news sources yet, but I will look now.
Just wanted to post this, Libya seems to be closing down the internet, this is turning into a trend!
Corrected above report to reflect GMT+2 time zone.
Two-thirds of Libyan routes came back to life at 6:01 UTC (8:01 local time), and the remainder were restored nine minutes later. At the moment, spot
checks of Libyan domains and traceroutes into affected networks indicate that connectivity has been restored, and Libya is back on the Internet.
Looks like a false alarm for now actually, or maybe a test? - I'll still post this, if the mods want to remove I understand.
