Images of burned-out electricity generation equipment at Venezuela’s biggest hydroelectric power plant were posted by the country’s communications minister on Twitter, as Caracas blamed arsonists for a crippling power blackout.
A large-scale blackout hit Caracas and nearly a dozen Venezuelan states on Monday afternoon, bringing the public transport to nearly a standstill. People attempted to cram into overcrowded buses to come home before dusk, as the subway system was also disrupted by the outrage.
The outage was reminiscent of a blackout that affected over 30 million citizens on March 7 and saw the Latin American country plunge into darkness.
