Bangladesh power outages, November 2014

Editor's note: As reported by the AP, power-starved Bangladesh began importing electricity through a 400-kv transmission line from India in October 2013. The country also has signed agreements with energy companies in Japan, China, Malaysia and the US to build power plants and boost energy infrastructure. Saturday's blackouts are Bangladesh's worst since a cyclone hit in 2007. - Tricia
