Chinese state media are reporting that North Korea has suffered a further Internet failure amid an escalating war of words with the United States over a cyber attack on Sony Pictures. The country's Internet and 3G mobile networks were reportedly paralyzed for at least two hours. Charles Scanlon from our Asia-Pacific desk has more.
"The information is coming from the Xinhua News Agency, which maintains a bureau in Pyongyang. And they are saying that there had been Internet outages, been very unstable, basically, for most of the day. At 7:30 evening local time, the Internet was a total blackout and on the 3G networks. It seems to be exactly what happened last Tuesday, when the Internet also went down, that time for nine hours. We don't know who is behind this. But what we do know is that the North Koreans believe it's the United States."
