Syndicate: yu-students offline?

Last point: we understand from
our friends in Yugoslavia that students at Belgrade University and
throughout Serbia, 30,000 to 40,000 in total, have had their Internet
access cut off.  The official explanation, believe it or not, is that
this will prevent Yugoslav students from hacking machines in Nato
countries, thereby provoking disconnection of the country's Academic
Network.  It says something about the importance of the Internet that
it has not served the purposes of the Yugoslav authorities to shut it
down altogether.

[can anybody confirm?]
