Syria: Power outage hits capital and south

Syria's state news agency says a power outage has plunged Damascus and southern Syria into darkness.


SANA quoted Electricity Minister Imad Khamis as saying that a problem with a high tension line had left the country's south without power. The blackout affects Syria's capital, Damascus, and the southern provinces of Daraa and Sweida, which abut the Jordanian border. (AP)
