Guaido calls for protest as Venezuela blackout drags into third day

Power went out in much of the country on Monday afternoon, less than two weeks after electricity was restored following the worst blackout in Venezuela's history.

Venezuela's second blackout this month drags into third day

Work and school were canceled for a second day after power went out on Monday afternoon in much of the country, less than two weeks after the country's worst-ever blackout left residents scrambling to find food and drinking water. "I think this is going to be worse than the first blackout," said Julio Barrios, 60, an accountant who was looking for open stores to buy food or ice. "A lot of people want to work but there's no transportation, and if there's nobody working the country will be paral...

Venezuela seeks to restore power amid looting; China offers help

Power had returned to many parts of Venezuela after a nationwide outage last week that Maduro's ruling Socialist Party blamed on an act of U.S. sabotage, though it had not fully reached the western state of Zulia, where temperatures are high.

Venezuela power flickers after worst blackout in decades

Venezuela's President Maduro starts new term, shrugs off criticism

The country's pro-government Supreme Court, which has largely supplanted the opposition-run Congress, swore him in following a welcome with a symphony orchestra and cheering supporters waving miniature Venezuelan flags. Before he had even completed his inaugural speech, the United States accused him of "usurping power," and Paraguay announced it was cutting diplomatic ties - a symbol of the growing diplomatic isolation that he will face in the new term. "That's the rallying cry of our revoluti...
