  • Description

    INTRODUCTION: Among nearly a million refugees in Portugal from the break-up of the nation's overseas colonies are several hundred families from Timor -- now occupied by Indonesia. East Timor, a Portuguese colony for the past four centuries, was annexed by Indonesia last year after a civil war. The refugees, officially called 'returnees', are housed in a make-shift camp of wooden hunts and tents on the outskirts of Lisbon -- and living in hope of making a new life elsewhere. A reporter visited the camp to see just how much hope they've got in a country which is already struggling with its own domestic social and financial problems.
