East Timor     BELO DENOUNCES MILITIA INFILTRATION
Dili's Apostolic Administrator, Bishop Carlos Belo, has told a Portuguese newspaper that pro-Indonesian militias are infiltrating East Timor and harassing the local population.
    He called on the National Resistance Council of East Timor (CNRT) to do everything possible to block the militias from entering the territory.
    The Bishop suggested a collaboration between former East Timorese guerrillas and UN peacekeepers to stop the militias from crossing the border from West Timor.
    He said: "We must also ask these people, who hide in groups, what they want. If they want to integrate peacefully they are welcome. But we cannot have a repetition of the actions committed last September".
