Egypt’s naval forces arrested three divers cutting through an undersea Internet cable today, the country’s military representative said, raising the possibility that saboteurs are behind severed lines and days-long Internet disruptions.

A coast-guard patrol stopped a fishing boat near Alexandria and arrested three men “while they were cutting a submarine cable” line belonging to Telecom Egypt, the country’s main communications company, Col. Ahmed Mohammed Ali said on his official Facebook page. The page offered no details on the divers’ identities, according to published reports.
