EAST TIMOR: The New Zealand Herald leads today with a report that East Timor's pro-independence guerillas and pro-Indonesian militias yesterday reached a weapons ban pact aimed at allowing today's independence vote to go ahead peacefully. An accompanying report says five New Zealand MPs will begin duty this morning at Anera voting centre, five hours south of the East Timor capital, Dili.
