Pakistan has been suffering a 40 day DOS attack, disrupting most of the
International Internet service in the country.

The Pakistan Government, Minister for IT & Telecom, has "directed" the
Pakistan Telecommunications Corporation to sign service level agreements
to ensure 99% Internet availability.

Over 200 official(government?) websites have been inaccessible for over
three weeks.
  "Within a period of five days, the body has been assigned to formulate
  a concrete strategy to stem the incidence of DoS attacks.. The
  committee will work on urgent basis and suggest short-term measures
  within two day."
