FILE - In this Feb. 20, 2014 file photo, a woman walks downtown after buying bread in Caracas, Venezuela. Venezuelans may soon have to scan their fingers to buy bread at the supermarket. President Nicolas Maduro announced late Wednesday, Aug. 20, 2014 a new, mandatory grocery fingerprinting system to combat food shortages. In the spring, Venezuela tried a similar system in government-run supermarkets on a voluntary basis.
