East Timor

A former Portugeuse colony, occupied by Indonesia since the Portugeuse granted independence and pulled their forces out. In September of 1999, the East Timorese overwhelmingly voted for independence in a U.N.-sponsored referendum. Government and military supported militias immediately started killing and terrorizing the population and foreign aid workers. By late 1999 things had stabilized with help from the U.N. and Australia.
