Martyr in Suai, East Timor: Father Tarcisius Dewanto SJ, killed by militias in the town of Suai in an attack on a church where up to 100 displaced people, women and children, were massacred. A nun who witnessed the attack from her house nearby said Fr Dewanto was the first to die when he went out to the militiamen lined up outside the old church. He was shot immediately, and two other priests were also murdered, Francisco Soares and Hilario Pereira.
