BEIRUT (Reuters) -- The Internet was working in Syria's capital of Damascus on Saturday, residents said, after a two-day blackout that experts said was highly likely to have been caused by authorities.
President Bashar Assad's government has been accused before of cutting Internet and telephone connections to block opposition activists and rebel communications during the 20-month revolt.
Authorities had attributed the latest outage to a "terrorist" attack or a technical fault.
