I don't think that is anything new to Baghdad. Aren't power outages frequent there?
Baghdad was in a virtual blackout Friday night because of an insurgent attack on the main power line into the city, CNN reported. A tower along the line was blown up, cutting electricity to about 70 percent of the capital and depriving some areas of water because pumps were without power.
The Iraqi Islamic Party`s office in Baghdad was bombed, while hand grenades were thrown into its office in the Sunni stronghold of Falluja, CNN said. Two other offices in cities near Baghdad were also hit.
