Verizon Calls On FBI Over Claims Of Sabotage.

NEWARK, N.J. — Talks continued between Verizon and striking workers Thursday as the company enlisted the help of the FBI to look into alleged incidents of sabotage at some of its network facilities.

Spokesman Rich Young said the company, based in New York City, has discovered more than 90 acts of sabotage since the strike began last weekend. Young said wires had been cut in some places, causing the loss of phone and Internet service.

Among the nonresidential customers affected were a police department and a hospital, according to Michael Mason, Verizon’s chief security officer.  Read more by David Porter at the AP here.
