UK government site, major news outlets down amid global internet outage

The UK government’s main website is unavailable on Tuesday morning, as several international media platforms went down, including The Guardian and the Financial Times newspapers.

Amazon and Reddit were also reported to be down.

The source is not immediately known, though some reports blame Fastly, a cloud computing services provider.

The portal gov.uk and the newspaper sites all showed error messages. The BBC was also temporarily inaccessible, but later returned.

Several other international media websites were down, including CNN and Le Monde.

Error messages appeared on the websites at around 1000 GMT.

The White House website had an error message but was available again later.

Many of the sites reported as down could be viewed from Israel.
