East Timor's former governor was released from jail in Jakarta, Indonesia, after a court over-turned his conviction in connection with violence that left up to 2,000 East Timorese dead, officials said.

Abilio Jose Soares was the only Indonesian official to be punished for the bloodshed that accompanied the former province's 1999 United Nations-sponsored vote for independence.
