On Sep 6 thousands of pro-Indonesian militiamen and their supporters stormed a UN office in Atambua, West Timor, killing three innocent people working for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). Two of them were radio operators, namely 29 year old Pero Simundza, 9A4SP (aka 4W6SP, T98P,ZA/9A4SP), of Split/Croatia and 33 year old Carlos Luis Caceres, KD4SYB. Amateur Radio and the world have surely lost two true humanitarians. Please sign their book of condolence at http://www.qsl.net/9a4sp/ and http://www.qsl.net/kd4syb/ which will be presented to their families.
