Lebanon's Power Grid Collapses Over Fuel Shortages

Lebanon's electric grid has shut down after the two biggest power plants ran out of fuel on Saturday, officials told Reuters.

EDL, the central electricity supplier, told Reuters it would try to use the army's oil reserves to revert the shutdown, which could take several days.

Saturday's shutdown is something experts have warned against for months. The critical failure of EDL's grid is a reflection of how deep Lebanon's economic crisis, which led to the constant fuel shortages, has gotten.
