Argentina investigates ‘unprecedented’ power outage

Argentina says it is investigating what caused a massive power cut that hit nearly 50 million people.

President Mauricio Macri called the outage “unprecedented”, promising a thorough inquiry, the BBC reports.

Almost all of Argentina, neighbouring Uruguay and some areas of Paraguay woke up to darkness on Sunday.

The disruption hit public transport while hospitals were forced to run on generators. Power had largely been restored by the end of the day.
