United Nations police in East Timor have arrested 34 people in relation to violence in the eastern part of the country over the past few days.
UN spokeswoman Alison Cooper says 21 were detained in Baucau, just east of Dili, and charged with creating a public disturbance by blocking roads, throwing stones and burning tyres.
Another two arrested in the town have been charged with building home-made weapons.
A further two people have been arrested for alleged arson in Quelicai for the burning of houses.
Ms Cooper says all 34 cases are with the Office of the Prosecutor for Timor-Leste.
She says the situation in Baucau and Dili has been calm over the past few days, with a strong presence by UN police, the East Timor national police, Australian-led international stabilising forces and the East Timorese armed forces.
The violence followed the announcement last week of the appointment of former president and resistance leader Xanana Gusmao as the country's new prime minister, angering supporters of the Fretilin party, which won the most seats at the June 30 legislative elections.
Mr Gusmao leads a coalition that holds a parliamentary majority.
