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

I found this exchange on Twitter (attached screen shot shows
@libyans_revolt telling Dan Murphy @bungdan that he was in touch with
people during the protests from Benghazi). A 30 - 60 minute outage may have
been missed by one individual.

I didn't find anything else after a few Twitter searches. Hope this helps!
