Power was restored in most parts of Bangladesh late yesterday, some 12 hours after a massive nationwide electricity blackout hit the country, plunging Dhaka and other cities into total darkness.

Authorities said local engineers managed to fix plants supplying 3,600 megawatts of power - covering some 70 per cent of clients - by 11.30 pm Bangladesh time.

Loud cheers could be heard in Dhaka as the lights came back on phase by phase in large parts of the capital, after thousands of residents spent hours outdoors or on their roofs.
