Pacifica Radio's Democracy NOW! Story: MASSACRE IN EAST TIMOR

The Indonesian government said today that East Timor's rebel leader Xanana Gusmão will be removed from house arrest and returned to prison unless he retracts a call to arms within one week. This comes just a few days after dozens of civilians were massacred in a church in East Timor by Timorese militias believed to have been armed by the Indonesian military. Indonesia yesterday postponed U.N.-sponsored negotiations on East Timor that were to be held this week, as renewed violence in the Indonesian-occupied territory threatens a plan for independence.

Guest:

Jose Ramos Horta, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize.
