The first cable cut occurred at 13:43 GMT close to Vernegues-France 
involving a group of six cables, damaged by an excavator, interrupting the 
service on the segment Marseille-Lyon.

The second cable cut occurred at 14:21 GMT on a highway near to 
Milano/Bersaglio, about 530km away, interrupting the service on the segment 
Milano-Zurich.

Service was restored at 1:40 GMT the next day.

It just shows that protected fiber rings do have an enemy - and his name is 
Murphy.
