Unnamed sources confirmed that the fight involving a gang of youths happened in front of the Malaysian Police's camp and near the Timorese police academy and said some people tried to seek help from the police but they refused to respond to the situation.

"We tried to contact the police, but they did not come and then we throw stones at them asking them to return to their country," the source said.

According to them, the UN and the PNTL have not worked professionally and that has caused people not to remain calm.
