The authorities in Nepal have released about 50 journalists arrested on Monday for staging a protest against current reporting restrictions.
Those released included the president of the Federation of Nepalese Journalists, Bishnu Nishthuri.
A spokesman for the federation, Shiv Gaunle, said that the protests to restore press freedom would continue.
This was the second time in less than a week that protesting journalists were freed after a day in detention.
Reporting restrictions imposed after King Gyanendra suspended parliament and assumed absolute powers in February, have outlawed criticism of the king, the government or the security forces.
