    Egypt Disappears from the Internet.

    Egyptian leaders made the unprecedented decision to shut down all of their internet service providers.

    • "At around 5:28 p.m. Eastern, the routes to almost all of Egypt's share of the Internet began to disappear from this global index. Egypt went from having 2903 networks connected to the wider Internet, routed over 52 ISPs, to only 327, via only 26 remaining ISPs. Either because of a physical break in communications, or through a deliberate act by Egyptian ISPs, Egypt was vanishing from the Internet's map of itself." via CPJ
