UN mission in East Timor ends

This week Australian and UN troops began the draw-down of peace-keeping operations in East Timor, part of the transition to domestic police and security in the country.

More than 5,000 UN Police have served with UN Mission in Timor since it began in 2006.

The United Nations peacekeeping mission has been a major source of security and employment over the past decade and while there are concerns about what happens once the peacekeeping mission winds up, the mission itself is widely considered a great success.
