Bishop Carlos Belo of Dili accused Indonesian security forces of acting with "incalculable brutality" against students in East Timor. Student sources said there had been at least one death in an incident on Friday in which soldiers were said to have opened fire inside the university campus in Dili, the territory's capital. Bishop Belo was jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize with Timorese resistance spokesman Jose Ramos-Horta in 1996.
