East Timor: Former Indonesian colony and Genocide victim

In May 2002 East Timor (Timor Leste) got its independence from Indonesia after 27 years of worst atrocities that resulted in genocide of at least 100,000 Timorese. East Timor was invaded by Indonesia soon after France left it in 1975. East Timor's resistance movement was violently suppressed by Indonesian military forces that devastated this small country located near Australia. The East Timoran capital of Dili was witness to brutal and fierce battle and mass genocide to suppress the pro-independence guerrilla warfare. Timor Leste leaders proposed a referendum for self-rule and 78.5% of the population voted to secede from Indonesia. After enormous international pressure, Indonesia finally agreed to allow UN forces under the aegis of Australian peacekeeping force to begin restoring order and peace to the genocide-ravaged nation of East Timor.
