[liberationtech] Syria blackout?

Yes, this has been confirmed by several people we know there.

Tor seems to be blocked at least on 3G connections. Download of some
file extensions through cleartext HTTP is blocked too (mp4, flv, mpg, ...).

It seems UltraSurf and some other VPNs are blocked too, though as Andrew
said, some other specific ones continue working.

For Tor, it would be worth setting up obfsproxy-equipped bridges. We
will try to work on this asap on our side.
