Investigators in East Timor will tomorrow start exhuming at least 11 bodies believed to be victims of an April massacre at the home of an independence leader.

It will be the first confirmed recovery of bodies from the attack on refugees at the home of Manuel Carrascalao.

An investigator with the UN civilian police, Friedrich Prax, says he expects to find at least five other bodies from another massacre at a church in Liquica, also in April.
