REPORTERS working for a Colombian TV station were attacked by crowds in Caracas as they covered Hugo Chavez' death

Reporter Carmen Andrea Rengifo and her cameraman Samuel Sotomayor, were set upon by the crowd who thought they were reporters for the country's opposition TV station, which is anti-Chavez.

The two were beaten and chased by the mob, before making a lucky escape on a motorcycle.

Both managed to escape without serious injury, however Rengifo could be seen with blood streaming down her face.
