Yemen Anti-government Tribesmen Attack Pylons, Cause Outages

Anti-government tribesmen attacked three electricity pylons with rifles in Yemeni northeast Marib province on Thursday, causing power outages in parts of the capital and some other major provinces, the official Saba news agency reported.

“The deliberate attack cut wires of the three pylons that supply electricity from Marib, triggering outrages in parts of the capital Sanaa and other provinces,” Saba said.

The attack was not the first of its kind. The embattled government has been reportedly suffering from “deliberate acts of sabotage” in Marib, home of the country’s most oil and gas fields.
