Massive Power Cut Hits Cities

Massive Power Cut Hits Cities

A massive power cut has hit dozens of provinces across Turkey including Istanbul and Ankara.

Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has said all possible causes are being examined, including terrorism. Officials are saying a break in connections with mainland Europe could be to blame.

Turkey suffers from sporadic electricity cuts but locals say they cannot remember such a nationwide cut for a generation, reports the BBC’s Mark Lowen in Istanbul.

One of the few cities unaffected by the power cut was Van in the east of the country, where electricity is supplied from Iran.
