Blogging from Dili

One of the reasons it's hard to understand what's going in East Timor is the paucity of English-language journalists and commentators on the ground in the country. It's good, then, to have the dili-gence blog, which is written by an expat working in East Timor's capital Dili. No word from him yet on the latest outbreak of violence, but plenty of interesting stuff in the archives.

While we're on the subject of East Timor, I wanted to post a couple of photos - I found them on Sydney indymedia - of the protests in Dili on April the 28th. They show protesters outside the Prime Minister's offices after police had opened fire on their rally. The photos clearly show that the protests of April the 28th included many civilians, as well as rebel soldiers.
