back in east timor a country that i came to many times in the late one nine hundred ninety s. and much more turbulent days. i have returned to retrace the steps of one particular battalion of the indonesian army as they retreated towards in the me in one thousand nine hundred nine. and to one of the saddest things i've ever known. september twenty first one thousand nine hundred ninety will forever be on my mind. but it was on that day at the town in seventy four five. my friend dutch journalists and the tunis. indonesia in faded east timor in one thousand nine hundred seventy five leading to an occupation that was
9:08 am
often violent and bloody the pro independent guerrilla force fell until fought for freedom and it was the only one quarter of the population who died as a result. in one thousand nine hundred eighty change of indonesian president brought home. a new president habibie sought a solution to the continuing problems in east timor and declared a referendum on the future of the region. in my heart just a lot of. if. or brought us interests. does. not just miss us after more than twenty years. to get his us then. we should decide. to stay with us or to simply as friends and deal would leap. it was
9:09 am
a huge story that my husband and. be covering. them shortly before referendum day we went to a front until camp in the jungle. it was an extraordinary experience especially to me to guerrilla commander on the act he shared his thoughts with us down thoughts that he still believes in today. as up i meant. by in contrast rapid or mental most of the song yes although some boss has sat in lengthy for a fight and been to court around the duluth the no i don't know what a book. in the new momentum to do ends of in the crapper on the scale as perso as investments in the the medical example are there. and they didn't lose the struggle the east timorese voted overwhelmingly for independence. things have become even
9:10 am
more dangerous however in the run up to the world the indonesian military and the pro indonesian militias they have formed and become increasingly violent. they no longer considered us to be observer of us they felt that journalists were on the side of the east timorese and it was so stuck in their minds that we became a talking to. those we coming. most likely problems crippled via the boys discovery or. if is a credit or last party in our sport there. was cereal and right there out an osprey. for. the military denied involvement in the violence down and as i am discovering they continue to do so today.
9:11 am
is. that. they any and mocking us you can say of the book even if you got locked out of it women are yet to hear that if you are young. you can be a reinstall in iowa sharia somewhat scary people. my friend shihan was also in delhi at the time working for the e.b.u. do you been broadcast. suddenly i see from the. military. go around. what's going on. inside. each and ray and i were on the roof when we came on the fire. and i was in the lobby on equasym militia man with a sword try to attack the journalist. who filed the last report. in.
9:12 am
the field. the next morning we were forced to leave the indonesian military came to town put us on two trucks and drove us to the airport. we were moved from one of the largest international stories at the time. we were devastated angry frustrated it was a horrible empty feeling. to be denied the ability to cover the event that we all knew in abbottabad we feared for the lives of many and it was almost no one left to tell the world. we were forced to cover the story from afar. and the e.b.u. meanwhile found a way to get journalists back to dili as soon as
9:13 am
a strain in peacekeepers arrived word got out that the european broadcasting your new maybe you had charted and they managed to get approvals to land an aircraft in dili. once the airport had been secured because we knew the winners coming in we set up a table. of the mandarin oriental we just showed up put their names and . details and pay for them it's one way trip to. come to the mandarin oriental hotel poolside will be someone there to meet you the cost is that i think a thousand u.s. dollars for this one way trip you're not coming back you get on that aircraft you're getting off at the other end so it was not chips at all. or even you would i describe myself like i really would pay this much my needs like to get to have one way ticket to hell and then pass a law student this showed up with his friend. to start

9:16 am
basically this town was dominated by seven four five. the people here were always reminded of the indonesian presence because of this this battalion. you can actually see seven four five seven four. five. it's still here. they tried to remove it but it didn't really work. the other america got back with a big. budget monitor back to barrow who in their own. goggle done i don't think i'm going to listen to. any. yeah keep up though i'm actually about got on that i've got issues that i'm a goblin but on a low caliber alum referendum model and when they come by and of a moment of seeing here and then on that i'd say the last color that i was other
9:17 am
than that but now that i come i could just as i kind of imbalance and then say more than one and and then they don't a share then i can mimic what i had minox and i had. an english error. on the morning of september nineteenth one thousand nine hundred ninety seven for find the departed lost palace and barked under drily. as they began. they headed. towards the beach at. the departure point of the battalion most of the soldiers left east timor back to indonesia right here. and the supply route for them kept their main supply. they didn't want anyone to have any profit from those
9:18 am
supply so they destroyed everything. and it was a group of italians one hundred twenty members who are not allowed to go on the boats but they had to go back to indonesia and they had to bring back the vehicles so sixty trucks and thirty motorbikes. from here and important destroy and kill everything you find on your way. to. get the boat out this is. an italian members who hadn't set sail those charts which were turning to come for you to indonesia. in lao to for the

9:20 am
stories would have to cover. at the same time as we had set off on a journey to help the soldiers of battalion seven four five ready themselves for day a departure from laga on a journey of a very different intent. what was to become a very dark day began here with a day that would affect so many families not only in east timor. having set their base alight with the talian departed towards delhi and began a pattern of violence that would continue for the rest of the day but. it wasn't long before the battalion met their first victims that morning. within ten minutes of leaving the base they came across two men on a motorcycle unfortunate enough to be on the same stretch of road at the same time it says two man were killed here by the indonesian military. twenty
9:21 am
first. of so come september one thousand and one. and i know these two guys or two brothers their names were in gusts and. unbeknown to the battalion the actions were witnessed by seeing me up into a. moment and land at a stand for some. it does make. the qualities drop but the bodies. and their message to give it become another thing i think if you look. at them battle is in. my and that doesn't stand a. them develop a bad news headline in my head that most don't want to come i had a bad think about him about the army. and i got in was in my business but then i'm sick and then bang my. dinner as a deal to put monday doesn't. the meat of a matter democrat have i don't have

9:31 am
investigate the war with the relationship with saudi arabia and the war in yemen to move that forward for debate on the senate floor in all likelihood that will happen next week but it's significant that among those who voted in favor of opening debate were fourteen republicans not to give you some idea of what a massive turnaround this has been back in march a similar proposal was defeated fifty five senators voting against going ahead with further debate this is just a very clear indication as to how the murder of jamal khashoggi has galvanized the senate into investigating the u.s. relationship with saudi arabia and drilling down on the involvement of the crown prince in the death of jamal cause this is something that is likely to be debated when the legislation goes on the senate floor ukraine's president petro poroshenko has warned of a full scale war with russia after a naval confrontation in the black sea earlier this week the russian coast guard

9:34 am
a cattle truck but i can remember surlier standing at the front of the of the tip. with his head up above looking down the highway the australian peacekeepers that set up in one of the beach front row tells him in dili the ring didn't steal they've made a headquarters in the main hotel which is called the tourist my hotel which is also on the beach we didn't want to get involved with the australian army we didn't want to be controlled in any particular way we wanted to. stay independent because we hadn't flown in with the australian forces we were prevented from entering into that protected hotel and instead walked down the beach from the promise about three hundred meters to where there was a nunnery an abandoned nunnery. andrea and i also took shelter in the town from that day. this is the first time that f. return to one thousand nine hundred nine and it's only partially familiar i've come
9:35 am
back to independent east timor many times and i've avoided the nunnery for fourteen years. i really very strongly remember how afraid we were when we were staying here that what we thought there would be a lot safer before we actually went to the lead and we experience when we actually got here. it was very unpredictable very eerie. you know did the gunshots fires we did we just didn't know we had we had no idea where we had to look out for. we thought that the indonesians would have left but many of them were still here. but there was no time for fear we were all here to work and that's what we did our story that day was right across the road from the convent where thousands were crammed together on the beach looking for safety through and out to interview them i saw this huge collection of. humanity on the beach and went to talk to the refugees and found this young refugee family
9:36 am
headed by sweet young i'm called and i try to saw. who spoke some english i said well i'd like to use you as an interpreter but we need some transport so they are not there to. come in my city i see them with so family and here those who took on me some of those who the day of the more. saudi in my car mom i'm with what are. the more likely what i wanted or no we didn't want to go very far we didn't want to go anywhere unsafe particular here so our first day in delhi. florindo roger had been driving journalists around dealey on the back of his small motorcycle all day as he dropped one of them off at the three small sunder was next in line. that other thing was that they said that
9:37 am
their beloved is in the bad blood he said but they were. in the quote that he laid it with that that is the only they get that one has. the chorus everyone because there's a muscle mass it i was. getting that without that we did to them oh they must have a mole that is that is a zero idea. i think set off earlier than florindo and sander john chip and i make lateral in such a ramesses car some way you had on the same stretch of road. they would be to first meet a battalion. was just beyond the city limits reading about off among us because. there was this noise of motorbikes arriving here on the corner and there were about thirty or forty. men on motorbikes we longed.
9:38 am
for. the sort of them up to. one of the first scenes that it was they attacked my driver i watched some of them might some up coming in. last. us. one of them just took his rifle and bashed his eye out with the rifle but. i just saw it. coming down his face like a. snake ready it was just like a broken neck it was just hanging down not on his cheek but if a book will do sweep through to those who spoke of what dog order there was suspicion very suspicious of him because he was with two westerners i said love the army guarding it good to get my book. it's. goes down. it's. much too moderate. we were ordered back into the vehicle and driver with his eye still hanging out. to drive the car down the hill.
9:39 am
a mobile they had said. yeah mark good to spear my son. would get me some play. the motorbikes stopped in front of us so we couldn't. go away we couldn't go any further. so it doesn't look good at those who have come on yes i was up to come on down the left you know so. little medical out of out of the that they're marked out over loved ones they might better luck on tuesday that there are thumbs up of the best buddies to do the way you do. i said to chip and to to ramos i said. we've got to get out or dad. lost a lot i haven't lost a lotus open. letter cup them up for the scum. mother could.
9:40 am
get well soon for those. to. go up monasteries with to get the luggage i don't mean they came off to us short which you can really do behind me just kept going as fast as we could we could and looking for company. so that it was a lot of luck. to you. what our society those days were. but thank god. we can when russia is gone you know just an idea where it was safe used to be and. you know he's he's an east timorese. time he muttered brown eyes that he was safe was beyond bieber to westerners who took this terrible. episode of. john and chip it through didn't unsure of what had happened to and it can add to
9:41 am
unsign chill. italian in the meantime continue on its bloody root of destruction. giving. then they and i find that this is the deepest or other thing a mortal sin more papa says that says that out that what they are most of it though i know more and it. will grow or a place to move up and since other. ballot model i was on the thing to get out and. say when i got a lot of americans who got it i did it they did it with the unit. i thought to mark this more. as a given but that if i didn't say that giving the. goodness a lot of truth so. that they have a lot of new community or a good one for their own. that's about the knitting me most of it in
9:42 am
a low that there was a. family of that there was in a very nice and there's a record. but it was a. little something but you need. medical as they can but. he has got a lot of it with them but. they met at the rest area last. hello stepper says with a look at him what did the little guy at the political atmosphere so that obama got it out of a horse i will end up dead there might be. a little too that i'm not a. battered bruised and bleeding in a rainbow made his way to the turismo tell everyone he could what had happened. we heard that sound it was missing so it was very confusing. my husband and ray was
9:43 am
looking for him next door in the tourist motel while i was still working i had to keep working because i had deadlines and so it was all like really. messed up because we were also really worried about your own safety i mean not much was standing lots of for building still burning you could hear gunshots so it's very very tense very eerie situation here. didn't feel learned very say. that all night i spent here with my friends with colleagues trying to make phone calls like really you know trying to get through to anyone who would have any news about and. the following morning paul dillon was one of the first journalist to find her out of the convent. to reste guy
9:44 am
came up to me sort of talking he said i know where there's this step for a joke we take you. so there we have this long. thirty thirty minute walk out to the corner. and then off left and started the road to a small gully water almost a driveway was sarah thought. want to side. it was new it was a very unpleasant you know you get used to seeing bodies in repose if you like almost with a sense of sort of calm. but i didn't get that often i didn't get that sense. i got a sense of reaching. you know. the only thing i could imagine with. his family his friends. fellow journalists.
9:45 am
i could hear people crying in the corner. very real moment for everyone. could just as easily be. anybody else in the nunnery that way. as the steep part. it's cool. that he reached. something that's why. i'm glad that. we were walking up here by our friends and they burst into the room and then the first thing they said yes we found. and of course then you know and it went into a whirlwind of events. we cried together with the trends trying to
9:46 am
grasp what had happened meanwhile painful gruesome things had to be done. and this body which had finally been recovered by those training peacekeepers needed to be identified. my husband andrei help for this task an experience that really traumatized him. jon swaine and chip high. we spend the night within metres of sand as body without realizing had been assisted back to delhi by peacekeeping forces the question was. what happened to ramos and what happened to ana tatar. with the rising of the sun we heard that a dutch journalist had been killed very nearby my immediate reaction was that he'd been killed by the same group that attacked us it just made perfect sense. of photography. agreed to take me back in his motorbike to. where the whole incident
9:47 am
happened that i was going to try and find. ramos we got back to where the attack happened and. the old battered old taxi was still there with his windows all bashed out. tires flat from but it holds. bargains are. for the good what about multiple. at the mall a said to somebody and suddenly there's a rustling in the bush isn't ramos in running up in his eyes don't you know we're going. to have to have three on a motorbike. and so he was in on it all my arms around him kept him steady. we decided to take him to the australian. military hospital they set up with. at that moment the commander the australian forces general cosgrove right i turn to my craft and said to general you know this
9:48 am
is what happened. out of my driver's head as i brushed up and he needs to urgent medical care. and he will theorize it was some sort of way and he turned to his men and he said get this but on the first flight to dollywood. in a strain the essentials received emergency surgery and a sight in his remaining i will see. as for my interpreter and a clatter. because it was a devastating thing to happen and. not something or to. not something to use a journalist that i want to have to go through. anyway. or on read obviously made inquiries about what happened to him and no one could give any real explanation. but later i learned that he had been taken with a group of other prisoners and paraded. up the army base. being beaten up
9:49 am
and that was the last anyone ever saw of him. i suspect that any plato like so many of us was ultimately taken to jack that not the capital city of indonesia but to a cliff south of delhi and then troll now. gleeful cynically named by the indonesians because the families of victims taken their toll that it was to jakarta that their loved ones had flats. i think this journey is for me. looking for some kind of closure and i'm not really sure closing what exactly. the idea when you are late but early on to gently my luck to mark a spot. where your proselytes are. underway at the men's hockey table you're behind the money barnett's a great time of the messiah and upwards are you today of early morning go might be
9:50 am
the same but. i get up each day what i said you did you know because a. police investigation shows that zander was most probably still alive and the soldiers picked up his body and directed off the road. that brought him to a piece of scrap and behind the house and shocked the liberty in the back. by the time his body was found his face had been mutilated beyond recognition. probably by used. by a buyer myself. seven job or. open set it up like to do this at our school are set up by. the daughter. saw him all the stuff but the. young fella collect the money my. guest must allow it to but i'll
9:51 am
put up by this i. hung up a bit of muscle we don't like that we're getting the side. so does he have you ever felt responsible for what happened in east timor. oh and that is one of the always is say i told you many many know. this is over youse on the. mutallab made it up but i'm a jackal. and lit a cafe we're hoping she lives lost and the old now is all on the road he perceives itself to fall. i always thought they're just going to chase us away to make us they want to make us scared they don't want any witnesses. to see the plan they had to file and says they had planned all the healings and they succeeded many journalists including me had to leave. and when we came back we thought no it's
9:52 am
