Ship seized for cutting Sri Lanka's internet link
Sri Lanka's high court has ordered the seizure of an Indian cargo vessel which allegedly cut a submarine cable connecting the island's telecommunications subscribers with the rest of the world. The court ordered that the vessel, State of Nagaland, be held at the Colombo port where it berthed on Sunday after accidentally severing the cable known as the SEA-ME-WE-III with its anchor.
