Australian troops help Timorese refugees
The Australian Defence Force says its troops in East Timor are assisting a record number of Timorese return home from refugees camps in West Timor.
Brigadier Mike Hannan says last month alone more than four-thousand refugees crossed the border into East Timor.
Brigadier Hannan says the 12-hundred Australian peacekeepers in East Timor have played a significant role in their safe return:
"This is a clear sign which reflects the work done by our soldiers in a assisting to help create a more stable and peaceful environment in East Timor. It's certainly been very satisfying for the soliders there to see so many of the Timorese making their way home."
