Rumble A major electricity blackout hit Pakistan early Sunday, one of the biggest power failures to afflict the country of more than 200 million.

The blackout affected much of the nation, including major cities such as Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Lahore, Karachi, Quetta, Peshawar and others.

One news account, on the website Propakistani, said the failure had followed the tripping of a power line on the national grid, although the exact cause was not immediately clear.

It quoted power ministry officials as saying that the restoration of power could take hours.

Pakistan’s state broadcaster said on Twitter that the power ministry was “overseeing speedy and complete restoration of power in the country.”

It urged people to follow authentic news accounts and not spread panic.
