Venezuelan Authorities must immediately release three detained foreign journalists and a driver, the European Union’s Top Diplomat, Federica Mogherini, said on Thursday.

“There is a clear call from my side to immediately release your colleagues in Caracas.

“We firmly believe that all journalists should be able to exercise their duties, responsibilities and rights in their work,’’ Mogherini told reporters in Bucharest after a meeting of EU defence ministers.

The journalists were working for the Spanish news agency EFE on Wednesday, the company said in the latest arrests of reporters covering U.S.-backed efforts to oust President Nicolas Maduro. (Reuters/NAN)
