There were approximately 800 displaced people here who have fled their villages after being intimidated by pro-Indonesian militias, with approximately another 4,000 in the surrounding area. <br />
<br />
They were all suffering from hunger and relied on the villagers of Galiana to give them food. Many were suffering from various illnesses including malaria and TB. <br />
<br />
On the day this picture were taken, which was Easter Monday 1999, 3 IDP's had been killed by the para-military approximately 3 kms. from the village.<br />
