WASHINGTON (AP) — National Intelligence Director James Clapper says it appears that a "non-state actor" was behind a massive cyberattack last week that briefly blocked access to websites including Twitter and Netflix.

Clapper says investigators are gathering a lot of data and preliminary indications are that a non-state actor is to blame. But he says he wouldn't want to completely rule out whether a nation state might have been behind it or not.

Clapper spoke Tuesday at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York.
