Iran says data centre fire causes Internet disruption

TEHRAN, IRAN (AP) – A fire in a government data centre caused Internet disruption for many users in Iran yesterday, an official said on Twitter.

Deputy Telecommunication Minister Mahdi Salem said that an “electrical connection” had caused the fire, but it was later repaired. Advocacy group NetBlocks said a major Internet disruption had occurred, impacting Tehran and other regions.

It was unclear to what extent Internet traffic was still affected later on.
