Are Communications in Damascus Down?

Syrian blogger Razan Ghazzawi has raised the alert of a possible Internet cut in the capital Damascus, where she reports that the phone services are also down. She tweets:


@RedRazan
: Two hours ago the #internet was cut at least in most neighborhoods in #Damascus. This is troubling news. #Syria

And she adds:

@RedRazan: I am trying to call my family in #Damascus but the call won't get through, many are trying to call their families inside as well. #Syria
