EAST TIMORESE REFUGEES ARRIVE IN EAST TIMOR'S CAPITAL OF DILI.
East Timorese refugees arrives in East Timor's capital of Dili with
nearly 200 other refugees from Indonesia's West Timor July 24, 2001.
The group are part of a programme to return refugees who fled - or were
forcibly deported - to West Timor after East Timor voted to cede from
Indonesia in 1999 after 23 years of often brutal rule. East Timor has
been under United Nations rule since the referendum and is expected to
gain full independence in early 2002.
