Venezuela blames 'attack' as another crippling blackout hits

Updated : March 26, 2019 10:10:15 IST

Power went out in much of Caracas and nearly a dozen states in the early afternoon, stirring memories of a week-long outage earlier in the month that was the most severe in the country's history.
Service was restored in many areas within hours on Monday and information minister Jorge Rodriguez said in a televised broadcast that power was being "progressively reestablished."
The blackouts come as the country is experiencing a deep political crisis after National Assembly President Juan Guaido invoked the constitution to assume the interim presidency in January, arguing that Maduro's May 2018 re-election was illegitimate.
