    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.

Almost two dozen parties are contesting parliamentary elections in East Timor today that are likely to return independence heroes to power.

Political stability is particularly crucial for the country, which officially gained independence only 15 years ago, because it is facing a financial time bomb.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Eng/Portu/Nat Thousands of people attended a concert for East Timor in the Portuguese capital, Lisbon, on Saturday night. Portugal has been outspoken in its criticisms of Indonesia over the bloodshed in its former colony and support for a multinational peacekeeping force is widespread. On Saturday the Portuguese Prime Minister Antonio Guterres said a peacekeeping force should be sent immediately to restore security in the territory, even without a U-N mandate, The Portuguese feel a strong bond with the people of East Timor and on Saturday came together to show their solidarity with them. Thousands attended a concert for East Timor in the country's capital Lisbon. Ordinary Portuguese have been showing their support for the Timorese ever since August's U-N referendum on independence. White sheets have been hung from windows across the country as part of a campaign of support and pro-independence car stickers have proved popular. On Saturday night there were repeated calls for a peacekeeping force to be sent to the province. VOXPOP: (Portuguese) "I think we are here to show our solidarity with the people of East Timor. They are suffering a lot. The importance of this event is to see if we can convince the international community to send a peace force to Timor. They need it." SUPER CAPTION: Vox pop SOUNDBITE: (Portuguese) "This is very important. This shows, this reflects everything that we feel for the people of East Timor. I never thought Portugal could do so much. It's incredible. It's incredible." SUPER CAPTION: Vox pop After the concert many of those attending took part in a candlelit parade, and then arranged the candles in the shape of a cross. The Portuguese government has been among the most outspoken of those calling for a multi national peacekeeping force for the province. It has even suggested a force could be sent in without a U-N mandate. On Saturday the Portuguese Prime Minister compared what is happening in the province to the recent events in Kosovo. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The question is whether the will of a people can be destroyed by the force of the gun, whether ethnic cleansing is acceptable in modern times. It was not accepted by the international community in Kosovo, it cannot be accepted in East Timor." SUPER CAPTION: Antonio Guterres, Portuguese Prime Minister On Sunday thousands of Portuguese are again expected to turn out, to attend a mass given by Bishop Carlos Belo, East Timor's spiritual leader.

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.

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."

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.

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.

Indonesian/Nat Shots rang out over Dili's main market for a second day on Monday as hundreds of separatist activists and anti-independence militiamen fought in East Timor's capital. At least one man was killed and several people were injured. The latest disturbances come one day after militiamen allegedly shot dead a man after clashes between anti- and pro-independence supporters. The escalating attacks look set to threaten U-N attempt to bring peace to the troubled territory. Hundreds of separatist activists and anti-independence militiamen came face to face in an armed stand-off in the East Timorese capital on Monday. Shots rang out over the market as fights broke out between the opposing groups. The gunfire was also heard in other parts of Dili, including near the University of East Timor and a cemetery. Frightened residents stayed indoors. Squads of riot police were deployed to the market and fired warning shots. Truckloads of militiamen, many carrying weapons, driving toward the market at about lunchtime. Others marched toward the same area. Most carried knives, swords and homemade weapons. Others were armed with genuine rifles. In some parts of town, pro-independence activists burned tires in the street. By the afternoon, many parts of town were empty as troops patrolled. The escalating attacks threaten to undermine U-N efforts to bring peace to the troubled region. U-N officials have begun preparations for a crucial August ballot on whether East Timor will break away from Indonesia, which invaded the former Portuguese colony in 1975. About 300 U-N police advisers are to help Indonesian police maintain security for the vote. However, pro-independence groups say U-N peacekeeping troops should be deployed. There have been reports of militia groups intimidating people into voting against independence. On Monday large groups of militiamen, wearing headbands of Indonesia's national red and white colors, congregated outside their headquarters close to the territorial governor's office and an Indonesian military barracks. About one kilometer (1/2 mile) away several hundred students staged a peaceful pro-independence rally. A prominent militiaman Eurico Guterres defended the violence, saying that those who were in favor of staying within Indonesia were vulnerable to attacks. Pro-independence forces have fought a guerrilla war against Indonesian troops for 23 years. SOUNDBITE: (Bahasa) "To solve the conflict in East Timor we have to start from the beginning - that is, who has started to kill the East Timorese and who has started the violence here and then we will get to the bottom of the problem. But if we only point the finger of accusation at one side then the UN peace mission will fail." SUPER CAPTION: Militia leader Eurico Guterres The United Nations has called on both sides to surrender their weapons before the poll on August 8. Pro-independence rebels have said they won't disarm until Indonesia's army withdraws from East Timor.

French/Nat The first contingent American troops arrived in East Timor on Wednesday. They will join the Australian led international peace keeping force which has been in the province since Monday. World Food Programme Aid flights to the territory have also begun in an attempt to bring food to the thousand of refugees who fled Dili when violence took hold in the capital after the August 30 independence vote. Troops from the United States arrived in East Timor on Wednesday to augment the international peace-keeping force in the beleaguered territory. The force, led by Australian General Peter Cosgrove, landed in East Timor on Monday to attempt to pacify the province which has witnessed widespread violence since its population voted for independence from Jakarta on August 30. The Americans are expected to be deployed in Bacau, along the coast from Dili. French planes also landed at Dili airport on Wednesday bringing with them a contingent of troops and a military field hospital. It's the first military team scheduled to provide humanitarian aid. Pilots have been well briefed on the operations but are in no doubt as to the difficulties which remain with their mission. SOUNDBITE: (French) "There are two things we most fear. The first is the presence on the ground of the militia which is still a reality. The site of the food drops are kept secret until the last minute though. The second thing is that the local population rushes under the plane during the food drops and we could hurt some of them when they are cheering the drop." SUPER CAPTION: Captain Francois Simon, French Air Force The World Food Programme has also arrived in the East Timorese capital. As the humanitarian aid arrives the soldiers already on the ground continue their duties. Patrols on the streets of Dili aim to flush out remaining militia men. Even those who outwardly seem to be independence supporters cannot be taken at face value. As a fragile peace takes hold in the city those who left to escape the violence in the last weeks are slowly returning. These refugees sought safety in the border town of Maliana and are returning to find out whether the homes they left behind are still intact. As the refugees return the Indonesian military who many accuse of collusion in the militia violence which followed the vote are beginning to leave. These soldiers are collecting their belongings ready to leave. Soon only a token Indonesian military presence will remain in the territory.

(22 Jul 2017) Residents of East Timor's capital went to the polls in East Timor's parliamentary election on Saturday. Almost two dozen parties are contesting parliamentary elections in East Timor today that are likely to return independence heroes to power. East Timorese hope the elections will repeat the success of a peaceful vote for the largely ceremonial role of president in March, which was the country's first election without U.N. supervision since peacekeepers left in 2012. Political stability is particularly crucial for the country, which officially gained independence only 15 years ago, because it is facing a financial time bomb. Parliament is currently dominated by a national unity coalition led by Fretilin, the party of Prime Minister Prime Minister Rui Maria de Araujo, with CNRT, the party of resistance leader and former president Xanana Gusmao, who remains highly influential. The Popular Liberation Party, a new political force led by former president and resistance fighter Taur Matan Ruak, is campaigning on a platform of better access to education, anti-corruption and compulsory military service to address high youth unemployment and may pick up a few seats. Campaigning, which was punctuated by parties trading accusations of vote buying, ended on Wednesday without major incident. East Timor, a former Portuguese colony, voted overwhelmingly in 1999 to end 24 years of brutal Indonesian occupation. Indonesia's military and pro-Indonesian militias responded to the independence referendum with scorched earth attacks that devastated the East Timorese half of the island of Timor. Today, the country of 1.3 million people, still faces poverty with many people lacking clean water and sanitation. Unemployment is high and young people are increasingly looking abroad for work. The top and perennial concern of voters in the IRI survey was the poor condition of roads. They also believed government corruption was worsening.

Indonesian/Nat East Timor has voted overwhelmingly to break its ties with Indonesia in favor of independence. In the referendum 78.5 percent voted for independence. At the home of East Timor's spiritual leader, Bishop Carlos Belo, people had been taking refuge in the run up to the result. The East Timorese capital was quiet after Saturday's result with frightened residents staying inside their homes. But there have since been reports that gunfire has been heard near the U-N compound. But pro-independence supporters are relieved at the outcome and some are hoping it will put an end to the violence. The independence movement leader Leandro Isaac believed the result would mean an end to the divide between pro and anti-independence voters. Militia leader Eurico Guterres said he accepted the result and put the responsibility for keeping law and order with the United Nations. Anti-independence militiamen have occupied many towns and villages across East Timor and police have evacuated dozens of U-N staff workers. Many U-N workers and journalists left before the result was announced after pro-Indonesian militia ran amok in Dili and other towns. In Dili Indonesian police were preventing pro-Indonesian supporters from entering the city. And at the port foreigners and refugees were getting onto boats bound for West Timor. SOUNDBITE: (Indonesian) 'We have agreed to live or die for independence, this is my dream come true. After this referendum there will be no terror and intimidation any more. However the militias are helped by the TNI (military). We want everything to become peaceful again.'

English/Nat The destruction in East Timor continued on Thursday as activists from both pro- and anti-independence groups laid waste to buildings in the capital of the troubled territory. An Indonesian army barracks was set ablaze by soldiers pulling out of the province, while pro-independence East Timorese set fire to a government building in Dili. The leader of the international force deployed in East Timor to bring the situation under control said that despite their remit, his men had limited powers to stop the arson. The Indonesian army is continuing its withdrawal from East Timor, leaving burning barracks and destroyed buildings. In the capital Dili, this army base was the latest to be destroyed. The army is thought to be destroying bases so that INTERFET, the International Force in East Timor, cannot use them. The military has been accused of collaboration with the pro-Jakarta militias who have been waging a campaign of violence since a referendum on the territory's future on August 30th. In that vote an overwhelming majority of East Timorese pushed to break free from Indonesian rule. But as well as acts of violence by pro-Jakarta factions, Thursday saw revenge arson attacks by those favouring independence for East Timor. A government building in Dili was destroyed by fire after being set alight by East Timorese angered by the Jakarta's handling of the situation in the province. The leader of INTERFET, Major General Peter Cosgrove told journalists on Thursday that there was little his men could do about the fire-raising. SOUNDBITE: (English) "There is still much lawlessness on the part of criminal elements and these elements if they are not baring arms do not fall within our mandate. A box of matches is not an illegal instrument in Dili at the moment." SUPER CAPTION: Major General Peter Cosgrove, INTERFET commanding officer He added that it had more deaths had only been avoided by luck. SOUNDBITE: (English) "When people are running around shooting weapons in the air or near other people the temperature goes right up. The temperature could have so easily have led to deaths both on the part of civilians who are minding their own business, and soldiers who are trying to bring security into an area where there has been none." SUPER CAPTION: Major General Peter Cosgrove, INTERFET commanding officer He said that tension in the province was gradually rising to a point where his men would be forced to return fire. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I really would want the militia people to understand that there is a boundary beyond which they cannot go. If they carry those weapons openly, if they point them at any other East Timorese or at my soldiers, then we will use lethal force against them.That time is possibly not far away." SUPER CAPTION: Major General Peter Cosgrove, INTERFET commanding officer As the government building continued to burn, independence supporters ripped down the Indonesian flag setting it alight to cheers. Cosgrove has said he does not have enough soldiers to protect all of the residential areas in East Timor's ravaged capital and it seems that the challenges his men face are becoming more difficult by the day.

ऑस्ट्रेलिया के बारेमे चौकदेनेवाले तथ्य |AMAZING Facts About Australia Australia (/əˈstreɪliə/ (About this sound listen), /ɒ-/, /-ljə/),[11][12] officially the Commonwealth of Australia,[13] is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania and numerous smaller islands. It is the largest country in Oceania and the world's sixth-largest country by total area. The neighbouring countries are Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and East Timor to the north; the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu to the north-east; and New Zealand to the south-east. Australia's capital is Canberra, and its largest urban area is Sydney. For about 50,000 years[14] before the first British settlement in the late 18th century,[15][16] Australia was inhabited by indigenous Australians,[17] who spoke languages classifiable into roughly 250 groups.[18][19] After the European discovery of the continent by Dutch explorers in 1606, Australia's eastern half was claimed by Great Britain in 1770 and initially settled through penal transportation to the colony of New South Wales from 26 January 1788. The population grew steadily in subsequent decades, and by the 1850s most of the continent had been explored and an additional five self-governing crown colonies established. On 1 January 1901, the six colonies federated, forming the Commonwealth of Australia. Australia has since maintained a stable liberal democratic political system that functions as a federal parliamentary constitutional monarchy comprising six states and several territories. Australia has the world's 13th-largest economy and ninth-highest per capita income (IMF).[20] With the second-highest human development index globally, the country ranks highly in quality of life, health, education, economic freedom, and civil liberties and political rights.[21] Australia is a member of the United Nations, G20, Commonwealth of Nations, ANZUS, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), World Trade Organization, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, and the Pacific Islands Forum. The population of 25 million[6] is highly urbanised and heavily concentrated on the eastern seaboard.[22] As of 2015, Australia had the 9th largest number of people born overseas, higher than Spain (10th) and Italy (11th)

Natural Sound Dozens more Indonesian troops abandoned their barracks in East Timor on Friday as Indonesia continued to pull its soldiers out of the province. Around 90 soldiers left southern Dili on Friday and prepared for their journey to the island of Java, as a three thousand-strong international peacekeeping force prepared to enter East Timor. The outgoing troops all said they were happy to be returning home. International peacekeepers have given assurances that the Indonesian army will complete its withdrawal by September 26, but upto 3-thousand of its soldiers are still said to be stationed in the area. Indonesia continued to withdraw its troops stationed in East Timor on Friday. Around 90 more soldiers were evacuated from their barracks in the mountains around southern Dili. They refused to say how long they have been in East Timor, but all of them said they were delighted to be going home. They are being transferred to Surabaya on the Indonesian island of Java. A guard has stayed behind to prevent the abandoned barracks being looted, as has happened elsewhere in East Timor after Indonesian troops pulled out. The guard will remain until a 3-thousand strong international peacekeeping force is in place in the troubled province. The Indonesian government has given assurances that most of its troops will be withdrawn from East Timor by September 26. However, this now looks doubtful, as this leaves just two days for Indonesia to withdraw a further 3-thousand troops. The last days of Indonesia's occupation of East Timor have been tense as its soldiers pack up and the Australian-led peacekeepers take over. Although both sides are largely cordial, the threat of confrontation remains. In an earlier incident, departing Indonesian soldiers set fire to their own barracks, and fired in the air as they drove in open trucks. On an another occasion, Nepalese Gurkhas under British command were ordered out of barracks they were attempting to search for a suspected sniper. The Indonesian military has pledged to cooperate with the international force, which has a mandate to restore order after the recent troubles. The violence broke out after East Timor's decision to become independent from Indonesia in a ballot at the end of August. The overlap period is extremely volatile, with two armies prowling the streets of the East Timor capital Dili/ The city has been wrecked by pro-Indonesian militias and their allies in the military.
