A power outage has been reported in parts of Venezuela’s capital and across several states

The internet monitoring organization NetBlocks said the outage that started in the early afternoon darkened much of the South American country. Government officials gave no immediate reports.

NetBlocks said the latest blackout also initially knocked out phone and internet services.

Critics of President Nicolás Maduro blame corruption and mismanagement by his socialist government, while Maduro accuses his rivals of sabotaging the power grid to stir unrest and force him from power.
