Geneva, Switzerland (Swiss Confederation)
East Timorese resistance leader Jose Ramos-Horta (L) listens to his co-laureate of the 1996 Nobel Peace Prize Bishop Carlos Belo during a session of the Commission on Human Rights inside European headquarters of the United Nations in Geneva September 24. Indonesia was negotiating with the European Union on Friday in a bid to tone-down an EU resolution which would launch a U.N. inquiry into killings, expulsions and other crimes in East Timor. Belo fled the tiny territory after pro-Jakarta militias attacked his house earlier this month.
