"If you're just joining us, the entire eastern seaboard of the United States has been decimated by a terrorist attack"

I've just had an email from the never-knowingly understated Kay Burley at Sky News telling me what's coming up on the show she apparently presents at lunchtimes.


We'll also be reflecting on how a ship off the Egyptian coast may have caused internet carnage across the Indian subcontinent. Underwater cables have been cut causing web chaos and it could take up to a week to fix. It's thought the ship's anchor may have cut through the cables which carry computer traffic from Europe. We'll be reflecting on how fragile the internet framework can be.

Internet carnage? So how much "extensive slaughter" actually occurred when people in Bangalore couldn't get on to Google, Kay?
