Russia has restored full communication with the International Space Station after a cable break cut off not just the ISS but civilian satellites too.

According to state-run news agency Ria Novosti, the cable was cut by accident by a construction crew working on the roads north-East of Moscow. Military satellites were not affected, as they use a different set of communications channels.
