  • A Tourist's Guide to Dili, East Timor/Timor Leste

    How to spend 24-hours in Dili, capital of one of the newest countries in the world. After a short hop aboard Nam Air from Bali, I land in sleepy Dili. The Hotel Timor is a good base to explore the city on foot, where I see the Presidential Palace, the Santa Cruz Massacre Memorial, the port area and a church. I see lots of great statues along the way, too. Then I catch a taxi to the Christ monument, and make it to the top to admire the view. After a brief stop by Dili Lighthouse, I end my day in Timor Plaza, where I enjoy a cooling beer in a rooftop restaurant.

    Indonesian/Nat East Timorese rebel commander Jose Alexandre Xanana Gusmao, has cast his vote in the referendum which is expected to deliver independence for his homeland. The 53-year-old rebel leader has been living under house arrest in government guest quarters, after being let out of prison in February. If the expected approval of independence occurs, it will be the fulfillment of a quarter-century struggle for Gusmao. But a result in the ballot is not expected for about a week. Under police escort, Gusmao voted at a U.N.-run polling station in central Jakarta. There were wild scenes as supporters surrounded Gusmao's vehicle for a view of their hero, and security guards jostled with dozens of photographers and television crews. Indonesian forces arrested Gusmao in November 1992,...

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...

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.

One of the primary concerns is water and sanitation, more linked to sanitation. We've been able to, in the past three or four days, to take a significant amount of food to the IDP centres." 13. Various of refugees in camp 14. SOUNDBITE: (English) Luiz Vieira, Chief of IOM East Timor mission: "The IOM, together with the UN country team, the UN agencies, the international NGOs, the Red Cross, we're all working to coordinate an appeal so that, you know, we're of course trying to limit the amount of duplication that there is in our appeals. But yes, further assistance will certainly be needed, because it is quite a large-scale crisis that we have on our hands." 15. Various of Australian troops checking young men at security checkpoint STORYLINE: Nearly 1,000 people looted government warehouses in East Timor's capital on Friday, stealing computers, office chairs and file cabinets, as the tiny country continued its decent into chaos. Foreign troops deployed in Dili to restore order were nowhere to be seen early on, and Australian soldiers who turned up later appeared to do little to stop the mass looting. 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.

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!

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.

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."

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.

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.

Indonesian/Nat East Timorese rebel commander Jose Alexandre Xanana Gusmao, has cast his vote in the referendum which is expected to deliver independence for his homeland. The 53-year-old rebel leader has been living under house arrest in government guest quarters, after being let out of prison in February. If the expected approval of independence occurs, it will be the fulfillment of a quarter-century struggle for Gusmao. But a result in the ballot is not expected for about a week. Under police escort, Gusmao voted at a U.N.-run polling station in central Jakarta. There were wild scenes as supporters surrounded Gusmao's vehicle for a view of their hero, and security guards jostled with dozens of photographers and television crews. Indonesian forces arrested Gusmao in November 1992, after he had spent years of hiding in East Timor's rugged, tropical wilderness. He was sent to prison for 20 years for leading the rebel cause. The 53-year-old rebel leader has been living under house arrest in government guest quarters, after being let out of prison in February. Since then, he has been talking to foreign leaders and working with Indonesian officials on East Timor's future. Gusmao urged a big turnout for the ballot amid fears that many pro-independence voters might stay away from the polls after a deadly terror campaign by anti-independence militiamen. Gusmao distributed copies of a statement in English, Portuguese and the Indonesian language saying that the international community would witness East Timor deciding its our destiny. However he steered clear of voicing any comment during the ballot, leaving his lawyer to explain why. SOUNDBITE: (English) "If what (sic) an explanation or a comment on the direct ballot today yeah, because he did not want to influence the counting of the vote." SUPERCAPTION: Mr Hendardi, Gusmao's lawyer Gusmao's future appears to be bright. The Indonesian government has promised to release him in mid-September, and he's likely to become the president of East Timor if voters choose independence. A result in the referendum isn't expected for about a week. All the ballot boxes from the 850 polling stations throughout East Timor will be taken to the capital Dili, where the voting slips will be counted. The result will then have to be ratified by the United Nations in New York before being made official. Indonesia forcibly occupied East Timor in 1975 and declared the former Portuguese colony its 27th province the next year. Following the ouster of autocratic President Suharto last year, the Habibie government gave the go-ahead for an independence ballot. About 451,000 people, including 13,000 East Timorese living abroad, have registered to vote for the referendum which is being co-ordinated by UNAMET, the United Nations Mission in East Timor.

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.

English/Nat U-N forces are tightening their grip on Dili as they venture into East Timor's interior. The peacekeeping force hopes to secure routes for the desperately needed aid. Buildings continued to be razed to the ground throughout Dili on Sunday as Indonesian troops made their way out of the territory. And for the first time since the start of the violence almost a month ago, the overwhelmingly Catholic refugees are finally returning to the capital Dili for Sunday mass. Banks burned and the streets were filled with smoke as peacekeeping troops patrolled through the smokey capital which remains an unpredictable and dangerous place. Most of the destruction is blamed on pro-Indonesian militias taking revenge on East Timorese who voted for Independence at the ballot on August 30. United Nations troops made their presence felt on the smokey streets of Dili by stepping up patrols. Despite the difficulties life is slowly returning to normal in Dili. For the first time since violence erupted in the tiny territory, there was a number of church services. But fear still kept many parishioners away. Most of the services conducted in the East Timorese capital of Dili were makeshift affairs. At one refugee camp they used the local stadium for Sunday mass. Most of East Timor's 800-thousand people are Roman Catholic. For almost a month the half-island territory has been terrorised by militia gangs backed by elements of Indonesia's military. The militia have long accused church officials of siding with the pro-independence movement. During the recent violence, priests and nuns provided sanctuary to people fleeing from the militiamen. SOUNDBITE: (English) "They have a conscience, a good conscience but the conscience has been destroyed by the Government by the TNI by the militia. and we want to take back our conscience our moralism our goodness. " SUPERCAPTION: Father Mouzinho Lopes, East Timorese priest When the U-N announced East Timor had voted in favour of independence from Indonesia, the militias went on a rampage. After the East Timorese overwhelmingly votes for independence from Indonesia in the August 30 referendum, militiamen went on a rampage, killing hundreds and burning and looting towns. When the fighting began may priests joined the refugees and fled to the hills. Most have still not returned. Australian troops, who form the backbone of the U-N mission, were on hand to ensure there was no threat of violence against the East Timorese by militiamen. Dressed in their Sunday best, many members of the congregation were praying for an end to the fighting which has left hundreds dead and Dili almost razed to the ground. U-N Commanders say they are almost ready to enter the second phase of the operation expanding its safety cordon from Dili and starting to secure road routes to the interior. But, the United Nations says the humanitarian crisis is worse than expected.

Indonesian/Nat Dramatic footage from the capital of East Timor show Indonesian soldiers herding pro-independence supporters out of town as militias loot and burn. 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.
