Telesur Journalists Arrested by Honduran Military now Free

Yesterday, a group of Telesur journalists was freed. They had been imprisoned by the coup-mongering military in Honduras while covering the police and military repression of peaceful demonstrations near the presidential palace.

Journalist Adriana Sivorí reported that she was kidnapped and assaulted by the Honduran military authorities. Likewise, she said that she was violently taken at gunpoint to the immigration authorities.

 “What we did was inform the people of what is happening in this Central American country. For this reason, without any explanation, we were attacked,” she said.

Sivorí said that she was detained with a group of reporters from an international news agency.
The journalist maintained that “whatever happens to foreign journalists who are working in Honduras, it is the fault of the de facto government.”
