Internet back on in Damascus - residents
BEIRUT Dec 1 (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 al-Assad's government has been accused before of cutting Internet and telephone connnections 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.
