Carrascalao - 17/04/1999 - Murder of 12 at home of Manuel Carrascalao, Dili

On 17 April 1999 militia leader Eurico Guterres was recorded on national and international television as inciting his own and the thousands of other militiamen from every district in East Timor gathered in a rally of 3-5000 to kill pro-independence supporters. The rally, to launch an anti-independence 'cleansing' campaign in Dili, was attended by the governor and all top government and military officials in East Timor. His men then attacked the home of Manuel Carrascalao, located next door to Eurico Guterres' Gardapaksi (later Aitarak) Dili headquarters, and left at least twelve dead. Several other prominent militia leaders also took part.
