Timor Post, February 15, 2011 language source: Tetun - A resident of Komoro village, Humberto Macedo, said he is displeased with the current situation in the capital of Dili, particularly in some suburbs as some people have started to create conflicts that resulted in people dying and this affects the security situation in the country.

"I am feeling displeased when hearing about conflicts taking place in some suburbs which have resulted in deaths and many injured people," Macedo said.

In relation to the conflict created by some people or groups, Macedo called on the Timorese National Police (PNTL) to better control the security situation in the country, particularly in the capital of Dili so that people can remain calm. He added that the police should not only hold patrols with car, but they should also hold patrols on foot as it will be easier for them to know the real situation.
