Irina Bokova

The murder of a Venezuelan journalist has been condemned by the United Nations.

The body of newspaper columnist and political activist, Wilfred Iván Ojeda, was found in a vacant lot in the Venezualen city of La Victoria on 17 May.

He'd been shot in the head.

Irina Bokova, the Director-General of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), has urged the authorities in the South American country to investigate the murder.

She said the murder went against the democratic right for people to engage in open political debate
