(AP) Syrian state TV and a U.S.-based Internet monitor say Internet service in Syria has been restored after a countrywide outage that lasted more than 16 hours.


It's not clear what caused the outage that began Tuesday evening and lasted until mid-afternoon Wednesday.


Syrian state media cited technical problems but there was also speculation that the regime had pulled the plug, possibly as a cover for military actions.


However, no large regime offensives have been Wednesday.


Syrian websites, including that of the state news agency, are accessible again after state media reported that service had been restored.
