BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

(Reuters) — German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Tuesday she had no information on where a cyber attack on Deutsche Telekom, which hit its network on Sunday and Monday, came from.

"I have no information on the origin of the attacks on the network, the ... appropriate body will do all it can to find out where the attacks came from," Ms. Merkel told reporters at a news conference with the Maltese prime minister.

"Such attacks are a part of everyday life and people have to get used to them," she said.

Telekom has said about 900,000 users suffered internet outages starting on Sunday and continuing into Monday. A company executive said it was an attempt to hijack consumer router devices for a wider internet attack.
