    LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- A large portion of Los Angeles was hit with a blackout Monday afternoon.

    The city was investigating the cause and extent of the outage. But Sgt. Catherine Plows, a police spokeswoman, said terrorism was not suspected.

    Electrical power was knocked out shortly before 1 p.m. after two power surges, and traffic was snarled at intersections throughout the city when stop lights went dark. The lights also went out at downtown high-rises.

    The Police Department went on "full tactical alert," meaning no officers were allowed to leave duty.

    The blackout came a day after ABC aired a videotape of a purported al Qaeda member making terrorist threats against Los Angeles and Melbourne, Australia, on the fourth anniversary of the September 11 attacks. (Full story)
