Venezuela Is Blaming A Crippling 5-Day Blackout On US Cyber Warfare

Venezuela is entering the fifth day of a nationwide blackout that has plunged even critical infrastructure like hospitals into darkness.

The South American nation, which is battling a crippling humanitarian crisis, experiences periodic power cuts, but the current outage is the worst in decades.

The lights went out in most regions, including the capital of Caracas, on Thursday at around 5pm.

Since then, power has returned intermittently in some states, but most of the country reportedly remains without electricity.

Venezuelan leader Nicolás Maduro blamed the United States and the opposition for starting what he called an "electricity war." His government alleged that the US sabotaged the country's main power plant, a hydroelectric facility, in Guri Dam.

Experts have contradicted Maduro, placing the blame instead on past neglect of the power network, and a skills shortage due to the perilous state of the national economy.
