Officials from the government of Bangladesh announced on Sunday that power has been restored to about 70% of electricity users in the country after a nationwide blackout on Saturday. Engineers hope to restore supply for the rest on Sunday. In the capital city of Dhaka, crowds throughout the city reportedly cheered as lights slowly came back on. The blackout was the worst since 2007 when a cyclone knocked out the national grid for several hours. According to the government, this time a transmission line failed, which caused power plants and substations to shut down.
