Timor Update: Failed Coup To Blame For Timor Leste Violence - NZ Commits 200 Troops To Timor - U.S-based security monitors are reporting that a failed coup is to blame for the clashes between Timor Leste security forces and former soldiers, Prime Minister Mari Alkatiri said Friday, May 26. Stratfor, a leading security consulting intelligence agency, reports Australian special forces have secured Dili airport, but lack approval from Alkatiri or President Xanana Gusmao to activate the remaining troops on standby. The intel-report states that neither Australian Prime Minister John Howard nor other officials had been able to contact Timor Leste's leaders prior to troops engaging in Dili. See...
