HAVANA, Cuba, Sept 2. Rolando Segura, member of the team of special correspondents of the Telesur television network in Libya, who stayed four months in that country, visited that television station based in Caracas, Venezuela.
We greatly appreciate having been able to see different stages of that process, asserted the Cuban journalist in statements to Telesur, broadcast by Cuba’s National Television Newscast.
The team, also composed of cameraman Henry Pillajo, left Tripoli after several days of being shut up at the Rixos Hotel, where it worked along with other international press professionals, the Radio Nacional de Venezuela Web site reported.
Upon his arrival from Malta on Thursday to the International Airport of Maiquetia, in Caracas, Segura criticized the media strategies to hide and distort reality, thus providing "arguments to maintain war," the Prensa Latina new agency reported.
Likewise, he denounced the atrocities committed against thousands of immigrants, particularly Africans, by rebel and NATO forces.
"Destruction, war, suffering and death have invaded that people, when the solution to this conflict could have been found by peaceful means," he commented.
Telesur continues offering information from Libya with the new team made up by journalist Diego Marin and cameraman Luis Gutierrez, who arrived by land to Tripoli this week after crossing the border with Tunisia. (acn)
