    A blogger who was targeted in a co-ordinated attack against websites such as Facebook and Twitter has told the BBC he blames Russia for the assault.
    The pro-Georgian blogger, known as Cyxymu, said he had been targeted for "telling the truth about the Russian-Georgian war" in his writings.
    The attack caused a blackout of Twitter for about two hours on Thursday.
    Despite the blogger's claims, security researchers say there is "no suggestion the attack was state-endorsed".
    Google, Facebook and blogging platform Live Journal - all sites where Cyxymu had accounts - were also affected.
    "I write the truth about the Russian-Georgian war and somebody did not like these truths - these people in Russia," the blogger told BBC News.
