East Timor:

Teresa writes about the latest controversy in East Timor where a Timorese person was shot by an Australian peacekeeper. Both the Australian and the East Timorese recount different versions of what actually happened. Teresa hopes “Of course, this event will now be used by some to foster instability, leading to more security problems. It is a sad happening. Let's hope for a thorough analysis of the situation and that violence will be kept under control, especially now that the mission will be extended and more police forces are expected to be deployed in TL.”
