Somalia has detained the "MSC Alice" which was alleged to have cut undersea fibre optic cables and plunging the country into a state of internet blackout. Somalia has for the past two weeks been without internet connection. The vessel had brought goods to a port in the capital Mogadishu when the accident occured. Somalia’s Attorney General confirmed that the vessel was being held in Somali waters and that the country was also demanding compensation from the losses that they have incurred since the incident. The outage costs the country $10m each day, he however did not state how much compensation Somalia will be pushing for.
