    A massive electricity blackout left half of Venezuela without power on Tuesday causing traffic chaos in parts of Caracas and other cities.

    An official said the cut was due to a fault on one of the national grid's major transmission lines.

    While the problem was being sorted the army was ordered to maintain security.
