Mugabe Threatens Foreign-Owned Firms Over Sanctions



Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe has threatened to take retaliatory actions against foreign owned companies in response to Western sanctions against his rule.

During a speech at a funeral Sunday, Mr. Mugabe said the United States and Britain should not continue their harassment of his government.

The 89-year-old leader warned that although British and American companies have been treated well, there will come a time when Zimbabwe says "tit-for-tat, you hit me I hit you".

Mr. Mugabe has rejected allegations of irregularities over last month's general election that extended his 33-year rule.

He has vowed to continue with controversial plans to force foreign companies to cede control to black Zimbabweans.
