Secret negotiations, preparing for a first-ever summit on international telecommunications, have sparked a wave of rumors, the juiciest of which has the UN seizing control of the Internet from a coalition of nongovernmental organizations that establish web policies, standards and rules. Toure, who will be running the World Conference on International Telecommunications in Dubai this December calls the rumor “ridiculous.” (AP Photo/Sang Tan, File)
