Venezuela orders 'bargain day' for shoppers

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has ordered the seizure of a chain of electronics shops to allow shoppers to buy household good more cheaply.

The military is overseeing the sale of cut-price merchandise at a chain of shops that sell electronic goods.

The president says he has taken the decision because the store, Daka, has been overcharging consumers.

Emily Thomas has the story.
