SANAA, Yemen, May 14 (UPI) -- Police in Marib province, Yemen, said Monday they had arrested a man suspected of sabotaging power lines.

Abdullah Medraj was arrested after allegedly attacking a power tower and was severely burned after throwing a metal stick at the power lines, the Interior Ministry said.

Medraj was taken to a hospital in al-Jada'an for treatment, Almasdar Online reported.

Since last year's uprising, Yemen has been plagued by blackouts as a result of attacks on its power lines.
