Posted in 1999-East Timorese Crisis

The East Timorese crisis began with attacks by anti-independence militants on civilians, and expanded to general violence throughout the country, centred in the capital Dili.

The violence erupted after a majority of eligible voters in the population of East Timor chose independence from Indonesia.

Some 1,400 civilians are believed to have died.

A UN force (InterFET) consisting mainly of Australian Defence Force personnel was deployed to East Timor to establish and maintain peace.
