Venezuela has been hit by another massive power cut, with the capital Caracas among the areas affected, APA reports citing BBC.

It's believed at least 18 of the country's 23 states have lost power.

Information Minister Jorge Rodrigues claimed the power cut was caused by an "electromagnetic attack" and officials were working to restore power.

In March Venezuela was hit by a series of power cuts, including one that affected all 23 states and lasted a week, leading to shortages and riots.

Another outage in April plunged large swathes of the country into darkness; however, that lasted hours rather than days.
