More information about the video content bellow: 1. The first new nation of the 21st century is located in Southeast Asia, just north of Australia. A Portuguese colony from the 17th century until 1975, Timor-Leste shares the island of Timor with Indonesia. When the Portuguese left in 1975, Indonesia invaded and annexed East Timor. The United Nations condemned Indonesia's occupation and in 1999 a UN-organized referendum guided East Timor to independence on May 20, 2002. 2. Dili is Timor-Leste’s capital city and largest city. Located on the island’s northern coast, Dili was settled as a port city by Portuguese traders in 1520. Dili became the capital of Portuguese Timor in 1864, and has remained the capital of Timor-Leste. 3. “Timor” comes from the Malay word timur, which means “east” – so the name East Timor can be translated to “east east.” The East Timorese often call their country Timor Lorosa’e. Lorosa’e means “rising sun”. 4. Due to its past as a colony of Portugal, East Timor is today one of only two Asian countries with a Christian majority (the other one being the Philippines). About 97% of Timorese are Roman Catholics and around 2% are Protestants. 5. East Timorese creation myth has it that an aging crocodile transformed into the island of Timor as part of a debt repayment to a young boy who had helped the crocodile when it was sick. As a result, the island is shaped like a crocodile and the boy's descendants are the native East Timorese who inhabit it. 6. The economy of East Timor is in shambles, neglected under Portuguese rule, and deliberately sabotaged by occupation troops during the war for independence from Indonesia. As a result, the country is among the poorest in the world. Close to half of the population lives in poverty, and as many as 70 per cent face chronic food insecurity. 7. To look at a map of Timor-Leste, it is easy to think that the people of Timor-Leste might have descended from the Indonesians, because of its proximity. This would be incorrect; they are descended from the aboriginal people of Australia and Sri Lanka. However the first signs of homo-sapiens are about 42 thousand years old!

The pictures were taken the same day Catholic Bishop Carlos Belo, an advocate for East Timor's independence, fled the island. Before he left, the Nobel Peace laureate expressed hopes that East Timor could one day find peace and freedom. A rare glimpse of the chaos in East Timor. As buildings burned across the city, armed militiamen rampaged through shops and homes, collecting their booty in piles on street corners. The compound which used to house more than 50 U-N vehicles now stands empty and charred. Hundreds of civilians are sequestered nearby inside the besieged U-N compound, while others are staying here at the police headquarters. Many have fled to Dili from outlying villages where they say the destruction and violence has been far worse. Some of the violence seen last week has abated since Indonesia declared martial law on East Timor. But there are signs many of the Indonesian soldiers are supporting the militias, in an apparent bid to punish the populace which overwhelmingly supported independence in the August 29 U-N referendum. The armed forces are furious with President Habibie for allowing the referendum to go ahead and fear it could inspire other independence-minded provinces like Aceh and Irian Jaya. As supporters of East Timor's independence were seen fleeing in droves, many with their hands held over their hands... ...Indonesian police and soldiers could be seen directing their departure. Few foreign aid workers are left on the island. These Red Cross left on Monday, and there are plans by the U-N to evacuate most of its remaining staff in Dili. Meanwhile there are fears for the fate of hundreds of East Timorese who had taken refuge in the home of Nobel Peace laureate Bishop Carlos Belo. Belo left East Timor on Monday after militia's attacked his home. Before leaving on a flight to Australia, Belo expressed hopes that East Timor would one day find the road to peace and reconstruction. SOUNDBITE: (Indonesia) "We will still fight for peace, reconciliation and hopefully the Timorese people can stand together and only through peace can East Timor be rebuilt." SUPER CAPTION: Bishop Carlos Belo of Dili, Nobel Peace Laureate Soon after Belo left with police escort, armed soldiers were seen entering his compound. Amid the chaos, a few people work to maintain what order they can. The badly equipped fire brigade fights a city ablaze, armed only with buckets and tanks of water.

English/Nat Hundreds of anti-independence militiamen fired homemade guns and burned houses and cars on Saturday after thousands rallied in East Timor's capital to demonstrate their loyalty to Indonesia. Some fired shots and pelted rocks at the home of prominent pro-independence politician Manuel Carrascalao, the brother of a former East Timor governor. The number of people injured in Saturday's violence was not immediately known. A thousands-strong anti-independence rally in the East Timor capital of Dili turned nasty on Saturday when hundreds of militiamen randomly opened fire and burned houses. Amongst the houses and buildings attacked was the home of prominent pro-independence politician Manuel Carrascalao. Dozens of people, many of them displaced villagers who had fled earlier communal violence, had been sheltering in the house. They ran away when the gang smashed doors and windows. At least two nearby houses were set afire. Witnesses said the men had been driving around the streets of Dili in more than 80 trucks. They went on a rampage after they heard gunshots in the eastern outskirts of the town. It was not immediately clear who fired the initial shots. Witnesses said some of the militiamen, wrongly fearing an attack by rival pro-independence fighters, returned fire at random with crudely made guns they had been carrying. Saturday's violence came despite a call for calm by anti-independence militia group Aitarak's commander, Joao da Silva, after weeks of bloodshed from fighting among various pro and anti-independence groups as well as the Indonesian military. Da Silva said his men would fight if necessary to remain part of Indonesia, which invaded East Timor in 1975 and annexed it in 1976. The United Nations plans to hold a vote in July to determine whether the people of East Timor want autonomy within the Indonesian state or full independence. The issue has polarized East Timor's 800-thousand people. Many fear rising violence could stop the ballot.

Many of those taking part in Friday's looting had been waiting for rice handouts and became angry after realising the warehouse containing food relief had been emptied overnight. They broke into nearby government warehouses, carrying out office furniture, car parts, even musical instruments and a saddle for a horse, loading them onto relief trucks. Some were seen driving off on motorcycles, carrying computer printers and chairs still wrapped in plastic. One of the many international groups working to care for those who have been displaced by the violence is the International Organisation for Migration. The IOM's mission chief in East Timor told AP Television on Friday that as many as 100-thousand people had fled their homes and were being sheltered at camps across the country. Luiz Vieira said water for sanitation was still severely lacking in the camps, but that "a significant amount of food" had been distributed. "Further assistance will certainly be needed, because it is quite a large-scale crisis that we have on our hands," Vieira added. The violence that erupted last week in East Timor was triggered by the dismissal of 600 soldiers from the 1,400-member army. But clashes between rival factions in the armed forces have given way to gang warfare, arson and looting. At least 28 people have died in country's worst violence since its break from Indonesia in 1999, and tens of thousands of people have fled or taken refuge in camps scattered across Dili.

http://SupremeMasterTV.com -- THE WORLD AROUND US Díli, Vibrant and Faith-filled Capital of Timor-Leste. Episode: 1655, Air Date: 27 March 2011. Welcome, loving viewers, to The World Around Us. Today, we will travel to a tropical island country where the Pacific and Indian Oceans meet. Southeast of Indonesia and north of Australia, across the Timor Sea is the lovely country of Timor-Leste, which consists of three islands and a separate exclave. These include the eastern half of the Timor island, an exclave on the northwestern side of the island, as well as the nearby two peripheral islands Atauro and Jaco. As the easternmost end of the Lesser Sunda Islands, Timor-Leste is beautifully called the "eastern rising sun" in Tetum, one of the official languages of the nation. Timor-Leste beautifies our Earth with unique flora and fauna over her picturesque mountains and fields. Like her neighbor Indonesia, Timor-Leste is the home of pristine rainforest that supports rich wildlife, with precious animal species including 250 kinds of birds of Asian and Australian origins. In those forests, one can also find many precious native plants, such as sandalwood. Besides being a home to abundant wildlife, Timor-Leste also presents our world with an underwater wilderness. The landscapes of Timor-Leste are decorated with waterfalls, tropical flowers, as well as precious metals and stones such as gold, manganese and marble. Smooth beaches outline the extended coast with soft white sand and volcanic black sand. Resting off the north coast is an underwater precipice known as the Wetar Strait. This three-kilometer deep marine trench is a flowing ocean corridor welcoming the migrating whales, dolphins, tuna and sailfish. Also along the north coast, Timor-Leste's pleasant cities prosper, blending natural beauty with the amazing culture of her people. The largest city and the nation's capital, Díli, is an important port in the region as well as a commercial center. Here, in the relaxing mild ocean breeze, life in Díli is vibrant and full of hope. Commerce, culture, art and other activities flourish. I am José Maia, pastor of the Parish of Suai. Now I'm here in Díli, the Díli Cathedral. I came here yesterday already to follow the celebration Youth Cross in Aileu today. National Youth Cross is most important to us, for the Timorese, because through the Youth Cross, all youth gather, not only youngsters, but all older ones, all the Christians in Timor-Leste to celebrate, to dialogue on Christian unity as well as national unity. The people of Timor-Leste consist of Austronesians, Papuans, and a small Chinese community. As evidenced in the early cave paintings, stone carvings, and pottery, human activity on Timor Island started 4,000 years ago. Today, the city of Díli has been completely rejuvenated. The more modern cultural center, known as Uma Fukun, or "living art," complements the antique market, which was transformed into a broad space for conventions and exhibitions for arts and crafts. Díli's streets welcome people from all around the world with their local art creations of wood and beautifully woven fabric. Over a dozen shops congregate in the weaving market, where Timor-Leste women will weave the beautiful legendary textile, called "tais," right in front visitors' eyes. It is an inspiration to see the elegance of both the traditional and modern patterns as we watch how it is made! With vibrant colors and creative designs, Timor-Leste's women have expressed their artistic sensitivity for generations through their fine daily work of weaving. A few steps further on the road is the fruit and vegetable market. There, the tropical vegetables and fruits will satisfy with their freshness and flavors. Díli is renowned for its beaches, Areia Branca beach in particular. An elegant white sandy beach, Areia Branca is very inviting to local residents and visitors alike to come and play, exercise or dance, or simply enjoy the ocean breeze. The waterfront remains a center of activity for young and old, from dawn till night. A park separates the beach from the road, with banyan trees and benches offering an excellent place to cool oneself in the shade. Of course, there are few things more beautiful than an evening in Díli by the sea. Timor-Leste is one of the only two predominantly Roman Catholic countries in Asia, along with the Philippines. The people of Timor-Leste have a long and strong spiritual lineage of the Christian faith, which has coexisted with a local animist tradition, as well as Islam, Protestant Christianity and Buddhism. The history of the Catholic Church has given the city of Díli magnificent cathedrals, as well as monuments and statues of saints. Díli's grandest Catholic church is the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, which is also the largest cathedral in Southeast Asia. Welcoming 1,800 people every Sunday, the church has a spacious entranc

Indonesian/Nat Muslims who have lived in East Timor's capital, Dili for more than ten years are now facing problems in the city since the recent conflict erupted in the territory. Since then, Muslims in East Timor, a predominantly Roman catholic territory, are now considered the enemy by pro-independence supporters. Some members of the Islamic community, no longer welcome in the capital are seeking refuge in the Annur mosque in Dili. One 180 Muslims (40 families) have taken refuge in the mosque. They have been here since September 8th. Many of the Muslims in Dili originally came from Sumatra and Java and have lived here, in the East Timorese capital between 7 and 11 years . They came to East Timor for commercial reasons - to be traders, as well as to spread the word of Islam. Recently around twenty people left the mosque to go and get supplies. They were spotted and are now being detained by pro independence people on suspicion of spying for the Indonesians. Violence erupted in the region when Indonesian troops and their militia proxies sought to avenge the overwhelming pro-independence vote in a U-N-supported referendum on August 30th. SOUNDBITE: (Indonesian) "Because the situation doesn't allow us to live in our homes, we look for the best solution to ensure the safety of our community here in East Timor, and we decided to take refuge in this mosque. God willing, we can find peace in here." SUPER CAPTION: Jamal, Immam of Annur Mosque SOUNDBITE: (Indonesia) "We will keep on living here because we have lived here for a long time and adjusted ourselves to this place. The local people have also accepted us. So we will stay here, whatever might happen." SUPER CAPTION: Arham, Muslim Refugee SOUNDBITE: (Indonesia) "If they stay here, we will make an effort to kick them out of this place. We don't want them to be around any more. We will happily welcome other foreigners, such as the Australians, but we are fed up with the Indonesian government and we are fed up with the Indonesian people who are still here."

NatSot/Tatum Thousands of East Timorese - demanding an end to Indonesian rule - have rampaged through the streets of the island's capital, Dili. Rioting broke out after a church service to remember the victims of a massacre three years ago this weekend. In that massacre, 200 pro-independence demonstrators were killed by government troops. They had come to Sunday mass to remember the dead from the slaughter of Santa Cruz in 1991. But as the congregation filed out from communion, the mood turned from sorrow to anger. The banners proclaimed their fight to rid the island of Indonesian rule. The flag of free Timor held aloft in defiance. The protest clearly timed to coincide with the arrival of world leaders, including US President Bill Clinton for an economic summit in the capital, Jakarta. Amid the noise, there were calls for Clinton to intervene on behalf of jailed Timorese leader Zananu Gusmao. Mr Clinton will raise the Indonesian human rights record in a meeting with the country's president on Wednesday. Fearing a repeat of the bloodshed at Santa Cruz which has characterised the East Timorese struggle, the Catholic bishop Carlos Belo appealed for calm. The bishop's words were heeded briefly, and the crowd began to move off. But a few hundred yards away, the mob regrouped - and anger erupted into violence. Any symbol of authority was a target. The police briefly losing control as the crowd went on the rampage. Reinforcements were brought in, and as the mob swelled to more than a thousand, the troops charged. Sticks and stones flew through the air. Although the fires burnt on, the violence in the main subsided and the streets became calm - although sporadic incidents continued in the city centre. With the government troops on maximum alert, tension across Dili remains high.

Various night shots of a house on fire STORYLINE Hundreds of protesters in East Timor headed to the capital, Dili, to rally behind ousted East Timorese prime minister Mari Alkatiri on Thursday, triggering fears of more unrest. Convoys of trucks carrying cheering supporters made their way to the city, under the watchful eye of peacekeeping troops. East Timorese President Xanana Gusmao has said early elections are the only way out of East Timor's current crisis, but has not said when fresh polls could be held or give any details on the search for a replacement for Alkatiri. Alkatiri stepped down Monday, bowing to pressure from street protesters and Gusmao, who is revered for leading East Timor's resistance to Indonesian occupation until it broke away in 1999. Many East Timorese say Alkatiri's dismissal of 600 disgruntled soldiers in March 2006 was to blame for street battles and gang warfare that left at least 30 people dead and sent 150-thousand fleeing from their homes. He is also battling allegations he formed hit squads to silence his political enemies.

Eng/Indonesian Australian peacekeeping forces occupied an area of the East Timorese capital on Friday in their biggest show of strength on the ground so far. An estimated 15-hundred troops backed up by attack helicopters moved in to secure the area. The Australian peacekeepers carried out house to house searches to flush out any militiamen still operating in the area. Troops and armoured personnel carriers sealed off a central district near Dili's port and conducted a house-to-house search for militiamen. Blackhawk helicopters hovered overhead throughout the operation, which was still under way after two hours. An estimated 15-hundred troops took part in the operation. Witnesses saw Australian troops detaining three unidentified men who were ordered to lie face down on the ground, and then were taken away. It was the most active step the force had taken so far to seek out people responsible for the tension in the city. The head of the multinational peacekeeping forces in East Timor has warned that his soldiers will shoot to kill if they catch anyone pointing a weapon at them. The Australian-led international forces have detained dozens of suspected militia members since arriving in Dili on Monday and have confiscated hundreds of machetes, knives and homemade guns. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We have identified instances where it is very likely that there has been interaction between T-N-I (Indonesian military) and the militia. This is especially to do with those T-N-I who have been recruited from within East Timor. This is understandable." SUPER CAPTION: Major General Peter Cosgrove, Commander of U-N peacekeeping force Meanwhile, Indonesian troops are continuing their retreat from strife-riven East Timor following Jakarta's announcement that martial law over the territory has been lifted. SOUNDBITE: (Indonesian) "In accordance to resolution 1264, control of East Timor is in the hands of INTERFET (International Force for East Timor)." SUPER CAPTION: Major General Kiki Syahnakri, Indonesian military commander in East Timor Indonesia said on Thursday that martial law had been revoked in East Timor and that the responsibility for security would be handed over to the multinational force.

Natural Sound Hundreds of anti-independence militiamen clashed with pro-independence supporters on Wednesday, close to the U-N headquarters in East Timor's capital of Dili. The fighting blocked the streets outside the U-N compound, trapping people inside. A U-N security officer confirmed that nearly two hundred people - including U-N officials and journalists - have taken shelter in an auditorium within the compound. Pro-independence supporters, armed with rocks and machetes, clashed with rival anti-separatist group on the streets just outside of U-N headquarters in Dili. It was the most serious confrontation between the two groups since last Monday's polling day. Earlier pledges by both sides to lay down weapons turned out to be empty promises, as chaos once again took over the Dili streets. One pro-independence supporter found himself singled out by the militia. Once down, it didn't take long for other militia members to descend upon him with machetes and knives. The pro-independence groups were virtually outgunned, though one member made his own firearm. It seemed ineffective against the rifles available to the militia. At sunset, smoke could be seen just outside of the U-N compound. A nearby house was set afire and cars driving into the compound were shot at. One taxi carrying journalists to the scene was fired on and its rear window was smashed. Around one hundred and fifty people are trapped inside the U-N compound, seeking shelter in an auditorium within the complex. U-N officials say no one broke into the compound. The violence followed Monday's relatively peaceful referendum on independence. Ballot counting is still under way but the success of Monday's ballot turnout suggests that East Timor may have rejected Jakarta's autonomy proposal and chosen to break away from 24 years of Indonesian rule. Earlier in Dili, hundreds of armed anti-independence militiamen gathered in the capital's streets, and at least one person was reported killed. The outbreak raised fears that the territory could slide back into lawlessness as pro-Indonesia militias - sensing defeat - try frantically to take control of whatever they can. The militias have accused the U-N of rigging the vote to encourage independence. Indonesian security forces have been accused by the U-N of arming and supporting the militia - a charge the police have continually denied. However, the swiftness with which the militia have been able to take control of roads and ports of transport does little to inspire confidence in the authorities. Indonesia took over the former Portuguese colony in 1975, annexing the territory a year later.

Natural Sound Pro-Indonesian militias have rampaged through the East Timor capital, Dili, attacking the home of Nobel peace laureate Bishop Carlos Belo, reportedly torching the Catholic diocese office and burning houses. Pro-independence sources say at least 100 East Timorese have been killed after two days of bloody unrest following Saturday's announcement that a U-N-run ballot on August 30 had overwhelmingly voted for independence from Indonesia. People continue to flee the province in an exodus which threatens to see the departure of as many as 200-thousand people, or nearly a quarter of the troubled territory's population. Late on Saturday, fires raged in pro-independence neighbourhoods throughout Dili, the capital of East Timor. The calm which had followed the announcement that the territory had chosen independence was shattered. Sporadic shooting was heard throughout Saturday night and rumours abound of massacres outside the capital. Foreigners were under siege at a couple of hotels and the UNAMET compound. Police seemed nervous, appearing to have no plan on how to handle attacks on locations they were guarding. At least four local U-N workers have been killed over the last week and another six remain missing and are feared dead. There are reports that the home of Nobel peace laureate Bishop Carlos Belo has been attacked, with militiamen torching the Catholic diocese office and burning houses. Pro-independence sources say at least 100 East Timorese have been killed after two days of bloody unrest. Leandro Isaac, an independence leader, says that 12 people were found dead in the Bekora neighbourhood of Dili. Smoke and flames were visible in that area during Saturday night. The only people who appeared on the street within the view of journalists were militia members, driving around on motorcycles and trucks. Armed paramilitary groups were neither stopped nor disarmed by police and soldiers. An army C-130 plane could be seen returning to Kupang, in West Timor, having traded soldiers for dependents of military and police personnel stationed in East Timor. After unchallenged attacks on the Mahkota hotel housing journalists, many decided to leave Dili en masse. More than one-hundred evacuated on Sunday, but a handful are believed to have stayed behind. Police would only offer protection for trips to the airport, not allowing the media to reach the UNAMET compound or areas where violence against residents was being reported. Military units which had been stationed near the Mahkota hotel had been replaced by police. Refugees could be seen sneaking into the seaport to get out of Dili by ferry. More than five-thousand terrified civilians fled to nearby islands, while exasperated police said 15-thousand people had crowded into the police compound to stay out of harm's way. There were reports of the militia firing on those trying to leave, including one incident in which two people were allegedly killed. The militias have said they want no locals to leave East Timor. The Indonesian navy was expected to land five transport ships in Dili to bring out refugees. Amid predictions that marauding anti-independence militias could trigger a civil war with pro-independence guerrillas, the Indonesian government is providing planes and ships to evacuate as many as 200-thousand people - nearly a quarter of the population. Police said that more than 10-thousand refugees had crossed the border into West Timor, which has not been affected by the current fighting, in the past few weeks. The government is setting up camps there to hold up to 100-thousand refugees.

Beautiful and unspoiled beaches, mountains, forests and so much more, here in Indonesia's Dili! A lovely Timor sunset, too... Dili, spelled Díli in Portuguese, is the capital, largest city, chief port and commercial centre of East Timor. Dili lies on the northern coast of Timor island, the easternmost of the Lesser Sunda Islands. It is the seat of the administration of the district of Dili, which is the administrative entity of the area and includes the island of Atauro and some cities close to Dili city. The city is divided into the subdistricts of Nain Feto, Vera Cruz, Dom Aleixo and Cristo Rei and is divided into several sucos, which are headed by an elected chefe de suco. 18 of the 26 sucos of the four sub-districts are categorized as urban. There is no city administration beside the district administrator, who was appointed by state government. The Timorese government started to plan in 2009 to change the status of districts into municipalities.
