For quite a few months now, the Syrian News website Sana has experienced attacks which leave the website unavailable most of the time. Luckily there is a way around it by not using the original but by using its IP-address, which is: There are backups to be found at (1).

For me the name Sana stands for the Syrian Arab News Agency, but today I discovered that there is a Swedish football player who has started to play for the Amsterdam team of Ajax, in the beginning of the 2012-2013 season. This guy called Tobias Sana is 23-years old and was bought by Ajax from IFK Götenborg.

Would Tobias know that his surname is the name of the official news agency in Syria? I wonder. Perhaps I should go and tell him? I at least tweeted this fabulous news to @AFCAjax
