Two Khmer Rouge Leaders Convicted in Cambodia

Khmer-Rouge-NEWS-smTwo senior leaders of Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge were sentenced to life in prison this week, more than three decades after their brutal rule. The two were convicted of crimes against humanity committed during Khmer Rouge’s reign in the 1970s. At least 1.7 million people died under the regime. The men are now in their 80s, and they are the last two surviving leaders to stand trial. They are expected to appeal the verdict.
