Abandoned Ship Anchor Found Near Cable Cut

7 February 2008

Flag Telecom reports that an abandoned ship anchor was found near the cut in FALCON between Dubai, UAE, and Al Seeb, Oman. They state categorically that that was the cause of that failure.

They're working on their failed cable near Alexandria; a remotely-operated submarine is being used to look for cuts along the cable.
