“President Nicolas Maduro said the government will expropriate industrial bakeries, which he blames for a “bread war” that has resulted in shortages of bread throughout the country.

“They’re going to pay, I swear. Those responsible for the bread war are going to pay and they better not complain that it was a political persecution,” he said on Sunday, according to the BBC.

He added “speculators who hide the bread from the people will face the weight of the law.””
