Tajiks Face Power Loss

DUSHANBE, Tajikistan — A Russian-owned power plant in Tajikistan warned Friday that it would cut off supplies unless it is paid back about $6.5 million in debt.

Sangtuda-1 plant director Rakhmetulla Alzhanov said Tajik state power company Barki Tojik was jeopardizing the stable delivery of electricity to domestic consumers by dragging its feet over the debt, which he said would reach $9.7 million by the end of November.
