05 JAN 99 - 08:19 East-Timor:Four injured in Ainaro reportedly without medical assistance in Dili

Lisbon, Jan 5 (Lusa) - The lack of medical assistance in a hospital in Dili could endager the lives of four young East Timorese civilians shot by pro-Indonesian militiamen in Ainaro on Sunday, a representative of the Timorese National Resistance Council (CNRT) has told Lusa in Lisbon by telephone from Dili. Leandro Isaac, CNRT's co-ordinator in East Timor, said that "hundreds" of civilians had recently fled to Dili, capital of East Timor, because they feared attacks by the pro-Indonesian militia movement Sukarelawan operating in the Ainaro area. According to CNRT reports, 12 East Timorese civilians were shot by the militia movement near Ainaro on Sunday, resulting in the immediate death of two of the victims.-Lusa nnnn
