The outage that downed Dutch government websites for most of Tuesday was caused by a cyber attack, the Netherlands' ANP news agency reported on Wednesday.
The outage affected most of the national governments' main websites, though phones and emergency communication channels remained available.
ANP did not provide the source of its information. Government spokesmen could not immediately be reached. On Tuesday they said a damaged fibre optic cable may have been to blame for the outage.
