Same, East Timor
Same is a city and subdistrict in the interior of East Timor, 81 km south of Dili, the national capital. Same has a population of 25,000 and is the capital of the district of Manufahi, which was known as the district of Same in Portuguese Timor. After East Timor's independence from Indonesia, the town was almost completely destroyed by Indonesian militias. A rebuilding project called Friends of Same is currently helping rebuild the city, along with UN envoys. The Battle of Same, as part of the 2006 East Timorese crisis, resulted in the Australians successfully securing the target compound and defeating the small rebel Petitioner force led by Alfredo Reinado, before the assault was called off by the East Timor government. Same is the capital of the East Timorese district Manufahi and Subdistrict Same. During the Portuguese colonial period the district was named after its capital. In the time of the Estado Novo, the place in Vila Filomeno da Câmara was renamed after the former governor of Portuguese Timor Filomeno da Câmara de Melo Cabral .
