Mobile phone firms deny responsibility for service failures during Tuesday demos

Mobile phone companies operating in Egypt have denied responsibility for repeated network failures during Tuesday's “Day of Rage” demonstrations.

Network failures were reported in Cairo's Tahrir Square–where Tuesday's demonstrations climaxed in an open-ended sit-in–and in surrounding areas.

Mobile phone company officials said they assumed that the government had interrupted phone services, but declined to comment on whether they themselves had been ordered to do so by security authorities.
