Mediterranean Sea - (Hunt for Red October Mess): An explosion off Malta's territorial waters aboard a Borei-class Russian submarine is believed to be responsible for Friday's destruction of internet and phone telecoms between Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.

A 6.5 Richter Scale tremor was recorded after the SS Marko Ramius sank on its way to an 'oceanographic survey' in the Suez Canal.

Last week the Bloodyvostock registered sub was the first Russian craft to complete a similar study in the Panama Canal where no internet or telecoms cables have yet been reported severed.

Communications with the Middle East is being rerouted via an emergency carrier pigeon service.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
