Based in Britain and writing in English, Gurnah, 72, joins Nigeria’s Wole Soyinka as the only two non-white writers from sub-Saharan Africa ever to win what is widely seen as the world’s most prestigious literary award.

7-Hour Blackout: Facebook dismiss the claim of ‘malicious activity’

Facebook has shut down claims of ‘malicious activity’ behind the seven-hour blackout that cost the company an estimated $100million in lost revenue.

“Configuration changes on the backbone routers that coordinate network traffic between our data centres caused issues that interrupted this communication. This disruption to network traffic had a cascading effect on the way our data centres communicate, bringing our services to a halt,” Facebook Vice President of Infrastructure Santosh Janardhan wrote in the post.

“The underlying cause of this outage also impacted many of the internal tools and systems we use in our day-to-day operations, complicating our attempts to quickly diagnose and resolve the problem,” Janardhan added.
