Syria drops from Internet 7th May 2013

There's been a number of reports that Internet connectivity to Syria has been broken or disabled and there is no official word on what has caused this.

Google's Transparency Report page [1] displays the drop off and a more comprehensive report is on Umbrella labs blog [2]
