Power partially restored in Pakistan after massive outages
Electricity has been partially restored to several areas of Pakistan, including Islamabad and Peshawar, the Pakistani Energy Ministry said on Monday, after massive power outages affecting millions of residents.
A countrywide power breakdown, triggered by a "frequency variation" in the national grid early Monday morning, has left large parts of the country including Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Peshawar and Quetta without electricity, Geo News earlier reported.
