Egyptian Websites Begin to Reappear on the Internet

Egyptian websites that have been unreachable for days began to reappear Wednesday.

The home pages of Vodafone Egypt and Etisalat, two of the country's largest telecommunications carriers, appeared at around 0930 UTC, according to IDG News Service monitoring of the pages.

Egypt was largely cut off from the Internet on Friday, as protests against the rule of Hosni Mubarak began to gather steam. The demonstrations, Egypt's worst social unrest in 30 years, continue.
