Telecoms down in parts of Islamabad – witnesses

Internet and telephone connections to at least some parts of the Pakistani capital, Islamabad, are reportedly not working today. Landlines in Karachi were able to receive some calls but were not able to dial out. International phone calls into Islamabad were also unsuccessful. No telecommunications officials could immediately be contacted to explain the outage.

Many witnesses in Islamabad who were speaking via satellite telephone said telecommunications were down in the centre of the city close to the presidency building, the Supreme Court and the National Assembly.

Security is currently tight in the capital ahead of a hearing at the Supreme Court later in the day into accusations against the country’s suspended top judge. The government decided to sack Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhary a week ago, sparking protests from lawyers and opposition parties against President Pervez Musharraf, who is expected to seek election for another term late this year.
