Indonesians kill up to 180,000 East Timorese civilians from 1975 onwards.

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/4630122.stm

It'll be interesting to see what the UN makes of the report. It's somewhat less than earlier estimates of around 250,000 killed but I would love to see the UN launch an official investigation into events and, on the basis of UN findings, see international tribunals bring some of the primary perpetrators and their direct supporters (including Americans such as Henry Kissinger) to justice.

  1. Is president Xanana Gusmao the same Xanana after whom the Union North cafe is named? I'm fairly sure I heard once it was a reference to an Asian freedom fighter of some description. What will the Union do if it turns out his tactics were questionable as well.
