Mission Accomplished. Brazilian Soldiers Leave East Timor.

A Brazilian Air Force (FAB) Boeing landed this Tuesday, May 24, in Porto Alegre, south region of the country, bringing back to Brazil 63 of the 125 military officers of the state of Rio Grande do Sul, who integrated the last Brazilian contingent in the United Nations (UN) peace force in East Timor.

The remainder of the group, who left yesterday the capital of East Timor, Dili, arrives today to Porto Alegre.


UN peace forces are leaving East Timor. Brazil and other 12 countries conclude their six-year assistance to the country.


East Timor was occupied by Indonesia from 1975 to 1999, when the country became independent. More than 200 thousand people were killed during the civil war.
