Riots Hit E Timor Capital

 

In the capital Dili, riots have prompted the Timor Prime Minister to go on the radio calling for people to "stay in their homes, stay off the streets at night", Brennon Jones, a UN official with the mission to Timor, reported to CNN.

As of now, only one person has been killed in the rioting and looting following a student protest which turned into violence when former guerillas joined ranks and began to throw rocks at the Parliment building.

According to CNN reports, "Demonstrators set fires across Dili, including the prime minister's house, his brother's residence, and several parliamentarian offices. They also torched some of city's main supermarkets and several vehicles."
