An inquiry was underway on Sunday into Bangladesh's nationwide blackout, which plunged homes, businesses and even the prime minister's office into darkness.

The outage marked the first time the entire country has been without power since November 2007, when Bangladesh was hit by a devastating cyclone.

Power was restored across the country by Sunday morning, a government minister said.
