Egyptian public television and radio channels came back on air after a short power cut that lasted about an hour on Saturday afternoon at the Cairo building that houses the state media headquarters. 

The power cut, which affected the Egyptian Radio and Television Union housed in the Maspero building in central Cairo, was caused by a technical problem at a power station, according to union head Essam El-Amir.

In April, an explosion targeting the electricity pylons supplying Egyptian Media Production City led to a power cut that forced several TV channels off air for a few hours.
