After attack against power lines, Sana'a in total darkness

Darkness retuned again to Sana'a on Saturday after power lines linking between the Capital Sana'a and the remote governorate of Marib were subjected to six attacks, local sources affirmed.
According to BBC correspondent in Yemen, the attacks were carried out by armed men affiliated to the former president Ali Abdullah Saleh.
The disruption of power lines came after President Abdu-Rabo Mansour Hadi issued decrees that dismissed senior military commanders loyal to Saleh, including his half-brother Mohammad Saleh Al-Ahmar, and his nephew Tariq Mohammad Abdullah Saleh.
Minister of Electricity Saleh Sumai'a has revealed last week that Saleh was behind the attacks against power lines, asking the witnesses of the GCC-brokered power transfer deal to put pressures on him to leave Yemen.
He pointed out that the electricity shortage had led to a widespread popular refusal to settle all related bills as people felt they were being cheated by the government and forced to allocate large sums of money towards alternative methods of power.
Meanwhile, Director-General of the Public Electricity Corporation Khalid Rashid said in a press conference on Saturday that the attacks carried out against electricity lines in the past months cost YR 33 million.
He made it clear that the lines were subjected to 144 attacks in 2011, voicing concerns about the continuity of attacks.
The Yemeni capital has been living in darkness for the last year due to the halt of the Marib gas-operated station that was subjected to sabotage acts.
Electricity crisis had led to the paralysis of factories, laboratories, workshops and many service sectors, pushing further Yemenis to unemployment.
