The government will need at least one year to restore full electricity supplies to Baghdad because of severe bomb damage, a senior Iraqi engineer said Wednesday. The engineer, Thakir Ismail Qubaisi, said U.S.-led air raids in the first week of the Gulf War destroyed all 10 of the Iraqi capital's substations, used to distribute power to Baghdad's 4.5 million inhabitants. There was no independent confirmation of his claim that all substations had been knocked out.
