East Timor: Rock Fights

Categories: East Asia, Timor-Leste, Law, War & Conflict, Youth

Diligence in East Timor has updates from the capital city Dili, where international police have figured out a strategy to deal with gang fights [1], usually involving small rocks and stones as the weapon of choice. “I believe the foreign police have adopted a slightly different strategy now. Rather than hoe in and try to stop it, they are tending to let it run its course until ammunition is exhausted before moving in. I think this is proving a more effective approach for them.”
