USA    US CATHOLIC CONFERENCE URGES GOVERNMENTS TO ACT
The US government should exert diplomatic pressure on Indonesia to control its army in East Timor, according to the US Bishops' Conference.
    In a statement released last week, Conference Chair Archbishop Theodore McCarrick, said: "The Indonesian military, which is widely cited as organising, arming and inciting many of the paramilitary mobs, must end such activity... For this to happen, far greater diplomatic pressure must be applied by the US especially, but also by other interested governments, and it must be done immediately and urgently."
