East Timor     'L'OSSERVATORE ROMANO' DEPLORES VIOLENCE
In a sharply worded article published yesterday, the official Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano has called attention to violence directed against Catholics in East Timor.
    "It is against the Catholic community and its pastors-- who have always been agents of dialogue and reconciliation-- that the violence of the armed bands has been directed," the Vatican newspaper noted. The paper reported that Bishop Basilio do Nascimento, the apostolic administrator of Baucau, has been attacked, as well as Bishop Carlos Ximenes Belo of Dili. There have also been a series of attacks on parish churches and convents in Timor, the story continued.
