Wiki will tell you all you need to know ...
Dili, also spelled Díli, is the capital and largest city of East Timor. It lies on the northern coast of Timor island, the easternmost of the Lesser Sunda Islands. Dili is the chief port and commercial centre for East Timor, and has approximately 150,000 inhabitants.
East Timor (officially the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste) is a country in Southeast Asia. It comprises the eastern half of the island of Timor, the nearby islands of Atauro and Jaco, and Oecussi-Ambeno, an exclave on the northwestern side of the island, within Indonesian West Timor. The small country of 14,609 km² (5,376 mi²) is located about 640 km (400 mi) northwest of Darwin, Australia.
East Timor was colonised by Portugal in 1702, and was known as Portuguese Timor until Portugal's decolonisation of the country. In late 1975 East Timor declared its independence but was promptly invaded and occupied by Indonesia, and declared that country's 27th province the following year.Source(s): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dili

What observed then have been an prolonged time of truly merciless and repressive government, which comprise massacres of civilians. The independence circulate grew to become into lead by ability of Nobel Peace Prize winners Jose Ramos Horta and Bishop Belo, and freedom warring parties Xanana Gusmao and Constancio Pinto. A referendum - amidst lots bloodshed - finally offered East Timor independence in 1999. (Following the 1998 resignation of the Indonesian chief Suharto.)
