Because It Worked So Well in Egypt

Libya has cuts off the Internet:
Internet service has been cut off in Libya for a second consecutive day as protesters step up demonstrations against longtime leader Muammar Gaddafi, a U.S. company that monitors Internet traffic said on Saturday.

Massachusetts-based Arbor Networks said data collected from 30 Internet providers around the world showed that online traffic in and out of Libya was disconnected abruptly at 7:15 p.m. EST on Friday after two partial interruptions earlier that day.
I kind of figured that Bahrain would go first, because it's a predominantly Shia country ruled by a Sunni king, but I may have been wrong.
