A few minutes back, the BBC website went down under unknown circumstances with speculations making rounds that it was brought down by hackers and enemies of the ‘western world’ who have forwarded some political demands.
Although the news website for British Broadcasting Corporation is now back and running, there has been no official explanation as to why it was off but the authorities sent an apology via twitter reading “Apologies, as we are experiencing technical problems on the BBC News website. We are working hard to resolve the issues’”
This follows last year’s shut down of social media sites like Facebook which were down for about 40 minutes and to date no clear reason has been forwarded for the anomalies. We are following the events and will keep you posted on any new developments.
