Peace Nobel Prize winner and President of East Timor was just shot by a small rebel force lead by the rebel leader Alfredo Reinado. Reinado was killed by the presidencial guard.
The information so far is that the President is only injured and there is the possibility he is evacuated to Australia.
I'm hoping he lives and this means the end of East Timor suffering. Reinado was reportedly alone in his struggle. More a bandit to me than a true rebel, he will not be missed. I believe peace may finally reach this beautiful country.
