ELLICOTT CITY, Md. (AP) -- Verizon Communications Inc. says a train derailment near Baltimore is disrupting land-line service to customers, including some government clients.
The problems Tuesday reached all the way to the U.S. Navy base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Lawyers preparing for a pretrial hearing for five men charged with orchestrating and aiding the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks couldn't access information stored on government servers.
The connection was restored by early afternoon but one of the defense teams requested a 24-hour delay of the Wednesday hearing.
Verizon says the derailment in Ellicott City damaged some of its equipment. The company says it's rerouting network traffic to other facilities.
