Power Cut Take Egyptian State TV Off the Air for Nearly an Hour

A power cut at the Egyptian state TV building took most state-run channels off the air for about 50 minutes on Saturday evening, state media reported.
Local media outlets said Saturday evening's interruption was the first time the mouthpiece of the state has gone dark since its inception in 1960.
"It's a matter of national security. It's extremely dangerous to have this situation," said veteran state channel news anchor Amr Shennawi.
