   MADRID, June 15 (AFP) - Thousands of phones and Internet
   connections were  severed in 15 Spanish provinces after
   saboteurs used chainsaws to cut through fibre optic cables
   belonging to Spanish telecoms operator Telefonica, the Spanish
   press reported Saturday.

   .....

   Communications between airports were particularly affected,
   causing delays  of three hours in the Galicia region,
   northwestern Spain, while numerous automatic cash distributors
   shut down across Spain.

   ...

   The Spanish ministry of science and technology has asked
   telecommunications companies to activate a backup plan in the
   case of such emergencies in future.
