Blackout In Venezuela Leaves Its Leaders Casting Blame In The Dark
A massive power outage has swept across Venezuela, leaving its two
leaders at odds over who is to blame for plunging the country into
darkness at a time of deep political unrest.
The outage began Thursday evening at rush hour, bringing the subway
system in Caracas to a halt. Thousands of commuters returned home on
foot, their walks lit only by mobile phones and the stars.
President Nicolás Maduro was quick to blame the "electricity war" on
the United States, which has supported Venezuela's opposition leader
Juan Guaidó after he declared himself interim president in January and
received endorsements from dozens of countries.
