A broadcast journalist who had been investigating alleged corruption involving European Union funds has been found raped and murdered, but it is unclear whether her death is in connection with her work.

Ms Marinova was a director at TVN, a small TV station in Ruse, and presented two investigative programs. In response to the charges, the Bulgarian government said Ezekiev and Dimitrova both had the right to take their case to court, but did not specify whether it had taken any action to protect them or press freedom. Attila Biro, editor of the Romanian investigative website Rise Project, and Dimitar Stoyanov, of the Bulgarian site Bivol, were arrested in the Sofia suburb of Pernik on 14 September and held for six hours. "We expect a swift and thorough investigation to bring those responsible to justice", the European Commission, the European Union's executive said in a tweet.

Viktoria Marinova, a Bulgarian journalist who had reported on corruption, was found raped and murdered on Saturday, authorities said. "I will closely follow the investigation opened by the authorities".

He said: "Viktoria's death, the brutal manner in which she was killed, is an execution".

Last October, Daphne Caruana Galizia, Malta's best-known investigative journalist, was killed when her vehicle was blown up by unknown persons.

He said no match had been found for DNA sample collected so far from the crime scene, which was close to a psychiatric clinic.

"We don't have information of her receiving any threats", Interior Minister Mladen Marinov said told reporters in Sofia on Sunday.

Police continue to probe the death, with more details expected to emerge in the coming days.

The Guardian reported that Bivol.bg owner Asen Yordanov had told AFP that his media had received credible information that its journalists were in danger of being assaulted because of the investigation that also appeared on Marinova's show.

Marinova is the fourth high-profile journalist to be killed in Europe since the beginning of 2017. "It was meant to serve as an example, something like a warning", Yordanov added. Kuciak had been investigating alleged political corruption at the time.

Following Marinova's brutal killing, the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe's representative for media freedom, Harlem Désir, said there was an increasing trend of attacks against female journalists.

In addition, Swedish journalist Kim Wall was tortured and murdered during a private submarine trip in August 2017.

Daphne Caruana Galizia, Malta's best-known investigative reporter, was killed when a bomb blew up her auto in October previous year and Slovak journalist Jan Kuciak was shot dead in February.
