- East Timor violence linked to drugs

- There are concerns that a big increase in gang violence in East Timor is being fuelled by the use of "ice", or methamphetamine. Large gangs have been held responsible for most of the violence in Dili since the first unrest in April and in the past week alone they've been blamed for up to 10 deaths. The gangs are a constant threat to the Australian-led international forces, which are patrolling the streets of Dili. Authorities in the city have confirmed that the ice is being used by gangs and is being manufactured locally.
