Subject: Fourth cable damaged in Middle Eest (Qatar to UAE)

A fourth submarine cable in the middle east was damaged Sunday
between Haloul, Qatar and Das, United Arab Emirates.

This is in addition to the damage affecting FLAG, SAE-ME-WE4, FALCON

Afer reviewing surveillance video of the area, Egypt's ministry of 
maritime transportation is reporting no ships were near the FLAG or
SAE-ME-WE4 cables 12-hours before or after the cable damage near 
Alexanderia, Egypt.  The reason for outage of the cables has
not been identified yet.
