Many unreliable and conflicting news stories emerged from East Timor in the early years of independence. The situation has improved with better media services now available but some caution is still advised.
If you go to Google Alerts and enter the search term “Timor” and your e-mail address you can get links to Timor related news e-mailed to you daily, weekly or as news appears.
While the major news media provide some news, it is also interesting to search for additional news sources which offer more personal perspectives from people who are living in Dili or have reliable personal contact with the local people. It is not feasible to maintain reliable links to such sources on this site but some can be accessed through links on this page at sites such as East Timor Directory and general internet searches. There are also a number of news groups which provide news about East Timor.
Wikipedia is another website with useful East Timor information and links to many other relevant sources including copyright free maps.
