Mini mouse cuts power to 40% of Phnom Penh

A tiny mouse has cut electricity to more than 40 per cent of the Cambodian capital Phnom Penh.

The mouse managed to short circuit a 40-megawatt power plant south of the city, said Chea Sun Hel, director of the power company’s distribution department .

“The mouse was as big as a human toe, but it created a big problem,” he said.

Phnom Penh’s 1.3 million residents often suffer power cuts the government blames on technical problems.
