Envoys mobbed in East Timor

THOUSANDS OF anti-Indonesian protesters yesterday escorted three European ambassadors through the streets of the East Timor capital Dili as they surveyed political conditions in the troubled territory.

The protesters shouted "Dead or alive, we prefer to be independent". The ambassadors also met students who called for the withdrawal of Indonesian troops and access by international human rights groups.
