The following images were received by Scoop today on a email discussion group.
They show what appear to be Indonesian troops gunning down a youth in the street's of East Timor as he runs away.
At this stage they have not been authenticated and they are undated. Scoop has requested authentication information from the source.
Scoop seriously considered whether they should be published or not, but the consensus among the team was that they should. And in any event they are already in the public domain.
This afternoon Scoop provided a copy of the photographs to the Indonesian Embassy in Wellington prior to publication.
When viewing these photos bear in mind that someone wants you to see them....note also that one of them - killing3.jpeg - is missing.
