The anti Fretilin mob was reported to be threatening to shut down the TV station if staff who were from the east were not sacked.
It was also reported that the internal refugees at the airport had been threatened and told they should “get out of Dili”. Despite the fact that the airport is supposed to be secured by the ADF they didn’t get to the refugee camp for almost an hour.
In addition LUSA has reported:
Ten arrests were made by the GNR, mostly after a car with machete-wielding youths was stopped by the Portuguese police in Comoro.
The GNR commander told Lusa that among those detained was a organizer of anti-government demonstrations that have occurred for six successive days in Dili.
In other incidents later Tuesday, two cars carrying Portuguese and Brazilian nationals respectively were stoned by unknown individuals who had mounted a makeshift roadblock near the center of Dili.
