E. Timor President Jose Ramos-Horta wounded in attack on his home

Rebel soldiers attacked the house of East Timor President Jose Ramos-Horta early Monday, wounding the Nobel Prize-winning leader in the stomach in a clash that also killed the country's top wanted fugitive, an army spokesman said. It was not immediately clear whether Ramos-Horta's injury was life-threatening, a presidential advisor said. Notorious rebel leader Alfredo Reinado was killed in the attack, as was one of Ramos-Horta's guards, said spokesman Maj. Domingos da Camara. East Timor television reported that the home of Prime Minister Xanana Gusmao also came under fire, but that no one was hurt. The unsourced report raised the possibility that the rebels soldiers may have been staging a coup attempt. The events plunge the recently independent nation into fresh uncertainty after a flare-up in violence in 2006 killed 37 people, displaced more than 150,000 others and led to the collapse of the government.
