    ^Denmark again, eh?
    You can always count on the Danish, cutting data cables in the East-African sea I guess.

    Seriously, the cables in the Red Sea are at about 650 feet/200 meters depth.
    Anchor incident is certainly possible, might even have been a trawler.
    3 cables in one go is unfortunate/unlikely though.
