Timorese man killed near Daniel’s workplace

The young man mentioned in this article, was killed in the street where Daniel works. Martial arts groups (effectively male youth street gangs) are a growing problem for Timor particularly in the capital where 40% of the youth are unemployed. Approximately 20% of men and surprisingly, 5% of women are members of martial arts groups in Timor.

“RTTL reported a fight between two martial groups in Kolmera, Dili on Monday night which left one man dead and one seriously injured. RTTL reported that 22-year-old Liborio Martins died of stab wounds. Minister of Interior Rogerio Lobato laments that a life has been lost due to martial arts groups problems. He said a total of 32 people are being investigated.”
