East Timor     VATICAN DIPLOMAT CONCERNED MUSLIMS DIDN'T DENOUNCE TIMOR KILLING
Vatican foreign minister Archbishop Jean-Louis Tauran said he regretted that no Muslim leaders had spoken out against the slaughter of Catholics in East Timor by mainly Muslim militias.
    Archbishop Tauran also told the French Catholic newspaper La Croix that he was disappointed at how slowly the United Nations reacted to the massive slaughter in the mainly Catholic territory which voted earlier this month to seek independence from Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim country. Pro-Indonesia militias, armed and trained by the country's military, have killed thousands and forced hundreds of thousands to flee their homes and the country.
