BEIRUT - Internet connections between Syria and the rest of the world were down, a US web tracking firm said on Wednesday, and phone lines into Damascus from other countries were not working.

"Syrian Internet offline again 07:01 UTC / 10:00 am local," Renesys said on its Twitter account.This is the sixth communications blackout of the two-year-old uprising against President Bashar Assad and web tracking firms say the government is probably responsible. Authorities blamed a blackout last week on a malfunctioning optic cable.
