East Timor

Thousands of civilians are massacred in East Timor after they vote for independence from Indonesia. 85% of the population are driven from their homes. 70% of the country is destroyed.

The USA refuses to interfere until public pressure forces President Clinton to tell Indonesia to withdraw. They comply immediately.

The UK continues to sell heavy arms to the Indonesian military throughout this period.
