A power outage affecting 22 of Venezuela’s 23 states continued for a second day Friday, further complicating the country’s ongoing political crisis. The blackout began Thursday afternoon due to a suspected failure at a major hydroelectric plant in the southern state of Bolivar. Commuters in the capital city of Caracas had to walk home after the outage affected subway service, and the international airport remained mostly without power.
