ANKARA, Turkey (AP) -- Officials say a glitch at Turkey's electricity power transmission network has caused power outages in several cities, including Istanbul and the capital Ankara.

The blackout early on Tuesday has brought subway and tram services in Istanbul and other cities to a standstill.

The Turkish Electricity Transmission company said "technical inspections" were underway and that it was working to try and restore electricity as soon as possible.
