Old woman cuts internet access in two countries

In 2011, Hayastan Shakarian, a 75 year old woman from Georgia, the country in Eurasia and not the US state, was looking for copper to sell as scrap. She accidentally chopped the fibre optic cables and cut off Internet services to her country and the neighbour, Armenia. When caught Hayastan pleaded her innocence saying she hasn’t even heard of the Internet.
