GENEVA: Complicated computer problems at key Swiss government ministries 
have paralysed work at several offices since Friday, a government 
spokesperson said.

The foreign ministry was hardest hit by the information systems failure 
and likely will face severe computer restrictions Monday.

The finance and interior ministries will fare better and be back at work 
when the week starts, Karolina Kohout, a spokeswoman for the Federal 
Office of Information Technology told the Swiss News Agency Sunday.

Speculation is rife in the Swiss media that the problems were brought on 
by a hacker. The errors were first noticed Friday. The government has 
not commented on those reports.
