|Venezuela blackout: Power outage across the country - BBC News|
Published on Mar 8, 2019
Large parts of crisis-hit Venezuela, including the capital Caracas, have been affected by an extensive electricity blackout.
President Nicolás Maduro's government has blamed "sabotage" at a hydroelectric dam that generates much of the country's power.
However, decades of underinvestment have damaged the major dams and sporadic blackouts are commonplace.
