Venezuela Blackout Hits Second Day, Government Claims 'Sabotage' To Blame

According to a report by Reuters, on Thursday, a major power outage hit Venezuela, presenting a problem the government of President Nicolas Maduro quickly blamed on sabotage at a hydroelectric dam that provides much of the nation's energy.

Reuters reports that both local media and Twitter users have reported that the outage was affecting the capital of Caracas, in addition to 15 of the countryโ€™s 23 states.
