Update: North Korea’s internet suffers blackout

Internet problems come just days after Obama threatens "proportional response" to Sony hack

Updated: December 23, 5:07 GMT - Websites hosted inside North Korea appear to be functioning intermittently, after being offline for approximately nine hours. North Korean websites hosted outside the DPRK were not affected by the outage, indicating that the blackout affected the North Korean internet, but not all of its web assets. 

There has yet to be any official comment from Washington or Pyongyang on the blackout.
