  • 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 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...

Witnesses said at least two people were killed as militiamen fired shots and hurled bombs at groups of rock-throwing separatists. Indonesian police sealed off large sections of the capital, Dili, following the bloody clashes, while frightened residents stayed indoors.

Between 50 and 200 people were killed when Indonesian troops fired on pro-independence protesters outside the cemetery seven years ago. Unlike other demonstrations recently in the Indonesian-controlled territory there was no sign of trouble at the rally.

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.

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!

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.

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

Revisited - Ten years have passed since East Timor won its independence from Indonesia. But the tiny South-East Asian state remains locked in poverty. In Dili, the capital, the average salary is just one dollar a day. The country is pinning its hopes on oil reserves in the Timor Sea, but these hopes are yet to become reality. Our reporter, Cyril Payen, went to Dili and got a glimpse of daily life there. The interactive report : http://webdoc.france24.com/dili-revisited/ 09/03/2013 REVISITED.

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 At least three people have died in the latest outbreak of violence in East Timor between opponents and supporters of independence for the troubled territory. Witnesses said at least two people were killed as militiamen fired shots and hurled bombs at groups of rock-throwing separatists. Indonesian police sealed off large sections of the capital, Dili, following the bloody clashes, while frightened residents stayed indoors. The violence erupted just days before East Timor is expected to go to the polls in a U-N supervised referendum on independence. Emotions were running high on Thursday - the next to last day of campaigning for the referendum on East Timor's future status. Monday's U-N-supervised referendum will offer a choice between independence or remaining part of Indonesia as an autonomous province. Daily clashes have become increasingly bloody between rival factions in the run-up to the historic ballot. Thursday's violence erupted as some 15-thousand opponents of independence took part in a final rally in the capital, Dili. Many in the crowd appeared to be members of militia groups. Dozens brandished homemade shotguns and other weapons, violating a U-N imposed ban on the carrying of weapons. At one point during the rally, militants started stoning the headquarters of the main pro-independence group. Officers fired warning shots in an apparent attempt to clear the streets but failed to disperse the crowds. Witnesses said two people were killed as militiamen fired shots and hurled bombs at rock throwing separatists. One body was left lying in a pool of blood. Another protester was shot to death by Indonesian police, who were accused by witnesses of doing little to prevent attacks by militiamen. But unconfirmed reports said the death toll was higher. Three people sustained gunshot wounds and many more were stabbed or hit by rocks and bottles. Blasts from homemade grenades repeatedly rocked the area Security forces attempted to contain the violence and forcefully arrested some activists. Indonesian police sealed off large sections of Dili following the bloody clashes. Many frightened residents stayed indoors. The lead-up to the ballot has been marred by attacks and threats against civilians and U-N staff by those opposed to independence. Earlier in the day, in the eastern area of Dili, a mob of pro-independence supporters set upon two anti-independence Indonesian supporters. Civilians in favour of independence claimed the militia shot at and set fire to one of their houses. The smouldering shells of burnt out cars and houses were testimony to the attack. Several civilians were injured, including an old woman. In tears, she said stones were thrown at her. Indonesian police were quickly on the scene and tried to diffuse the situation. SOUNDBITE: (English) "A lot of people are already crazy; when people with this information goes to that gathering." SUPER CAPTION: Intelligence Officer Daily clashes between small rival gangs have become increasingly bloody. As many as 60-thousand people have fled their homes because of violence seemingly designed to scupper the ballot. Some fear the violence will result in a decisive win for the independence camp. Meanwhile, in a surprise development, Justice Minister Muladi said jailed East Timor resistance leader Xanana Gusmao was expected to be released on September 15. Gusmao, a hero to supporters of Timorese independence, was captured and jailed by Jakarta in 1992 for leading armed resistance to Indonesian rule in the territory. The U-N has already twice postponed the ballot because of violence in the former Portuguese colony.

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.

English/Nat Ten thousand people gathered in a graveyard in the capital of East Timor, Dili, on Thursday to commemorate the anniversary of a massacre of anti-Indonesian protesters in 1991. Between 50 and 200 people were killed when Indonesian troops fired on pro-independence protesters outside the cemetery seven years ago. Unlike other demonstrations recently in the Indonesian-controlled territory there was no sign of trouble at the rally. Thursday's ceremony followed an early morning Mass by Bishop Carlos Belo, the spiritual leader of predominantly Roman Catholic East Timor. Earlier this week, Belo, who won the 1996 Nobel Peace Prize, together with Indonesian military chiefs, urged East Timorese to remain calm during the anniversary. On November 12 1991, Indonesian troops fired on pro-independence protesters in front of Santa Cruz cemetery in Dili. Up to 200 people were mowed down. An official death toll has never been established as Jakarta was anxious to repress any information on the massacre. Among the protesters were supporters of Xanana Gusmao, a rebel guerrilla leader who is serving a 20-year prison term for fighting Indonesian troops. This year's ceremony comes amid new efforts to secure a lasting peace for East Timor. On Tuesday Indonesian President B.J. Habibie opened the first session of the People's Consultative Assembly or M-P-R since he came to power. The meeting will consider Habibie's offer to East Timor of a form of autonomy in return for international recognition that the territory is part of Indonesia. The United Nations does not recognize Indonesia's claim of sovereignty but is sponsoring talks between Indonesia and Portugal over the future of East Timor. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We have received orders from our commander in chief, Xanana Gusmao, that we must make a simple celebration in order to demonstrate to the Indonesian people and also to the M.P. assembly now that we have a very good willingness in going to cooperate with the United Nations, within reason and also with the Portuguese government." SUPER CAPTION: Moue Houdo, spokesman for Xanana Gusmao The leaders of opposing East Timorese factions, that either support or oppose independence from Indonesia, came together to lay wreaths at the cemetery. Mainly Muslim Indonesia annexed East Timor in 1976 after invading the year before during civil war that broke out in the last days of Portuguese colonial rule. Human rights abuses and guerrilla warfare have wracked the territory since. As a final act of remembrance the crowd re-enacted the massacre, dozens of them laying on the ground as the noise of machine guns echoed across the cemetery.

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 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.
