East Africa's high-speed internet access has been severely disrupted after a ship dropped its anchor onto fibre-optic cables off Kenya's coast.

 

The ship was waiting to enter Mombasa - one of Africa's busiest ports - when it anchored in a restricted area.

 

It could take up to 14 days to repair one of three undersea cables to have arrived in the region since 2009, delivering faster internet access.
