My web page embeds a common OSM map, which doesn't work now (yesterday it was ok), since all requests of type *.tile.openstreetmap.org (e.g., http://c.tile.openstreetmap.org/10/637/386.png) are timed out. I tried to ping with the following results:

$ping tile.openstreetmap.org

PING baku.tile.openstreetmap.org ( 56(84) bytes of data.
--- baku.tile.openstreetmap.org ping statistics ---
20 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 20237ms

The service is down for almost 12 hours (starting from this morning), please deal with this.

FWIW, the server from which your tiles are served seems to work for me:

Pinging baku.tile.openstreetmap.org [] with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from bytes=32 time=105ms TTL=54
Reply from bytes=32 time=105ms TTL=54
Reply from bytes=32 time=105ms TTL=54
Reply from bytes=32 time=104ms TTL=54

What does a traceroute have to say?

Thanks for quick response, SomeoneElse. I think this is a political issue, since I request the tiles from Armenia, whereas tile.openstreetmap.org redirects to baku.tile.openstreetmap.org (to Azerbaijan). It seems, they blocked all requests from Armenian IPs... So, I guess it's totally against OpenStreetMap's policy!

With a bit of luck (based on comments on #osm-dev) this might start working again shortly.
