Two British journalists and an Argentine were detained by the Venezuelan military Friday at the northwestern border with Colombia, the national press union (SNTP) said.
It said their whereabouts are unknown but claimed they had been "in Venezuela for three days reporting on tourism."
Three people hired as security by the journalists were arrested Wednesday, the SNTP said.
Several foreign journalists have been deported by Venezuelan authorities in recent years as they didn't have permits authorizing them to work in the country.
It has resulted in 1.6 million Venezuelans fleeing the country since 2015, according to the United Nations.
Organizations such as SNTP have accused Maduro's government of violating press freedom through the closure of media outlets, censorship and the restriction of paper deliveries, which are monopolized by authorities.
For his part, Maduro has accused international media organizations of being mouthpieces for a United States-backed campaign involving the opposition to overthrow him.
