Ramos-Horta to bear Timor's "wooden cross"


Jose Ramos-Horta, who yesterday appeared headed for a landslide victory in East Timor's presidential election, is a Nobel laureate who rose to prominence promoting his nation's right to independence during 24 years in exile. A Catholic, Ramos-Horta is one of 11 children, born in the capital, Dili, to Portuguese-East Timorese parents. A charismatic speaker, Ramos-Horta told reporters recently: "If I win the election, I will bear a wooden cross almost as heavy as Christ's. If I lose, I will win my freedom".
