Indonesia occupied this East Timor for 24 years. The people voted for independence in 1999. Pro-Indonesian militias reacted by terrorizing the population. International peacekeepers eventually brought calm. East Timor became independent in 2002. But most doctors had left East Timor in 1999. But here's an American doctor who's still there. Dr. Dan Murphy runs a health clinic in the capital, Dili.
