[liberationtech] Did Libya cut off the internet today in Benghazi?

A number of reports have come to my attention today that someone in the
NTC, the new leadership in Libya, ordered the internet connection in
Benghazi cut today, during protests there against corruption and the NTC.

I'm trying to follow up this issue, and wondering if there's supporting
data to be found here:

It's believed the cut was very brief, 30-60 minutes, before a local militia
forced those responsible to reverse the action. I'm also not yet sure
whether it actually happened, or is a rumor, however it does appear there
was a differentiation in the fraction of total traffic from Libya in
comparison with preceding days. Can anyone assist who has a better
understanding of how those statistics actually work?
