Internet Black Holes

I came across this (dead link) story (http://digg.com/tech_news/The_Black_Hole_Of_The_Internet_Pic) which lists down 15 countries as black holes spread around the World Wide Web, preventing free flow of news and information sharing over Internet. These countries include Belarus, Burma, China, Cuba, Egypt, Iran, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Vietnam.
