Cambodia to hear closing statements in Khmer Rouge trial
PHNOM PENH — Agence France-Presse Published Tuesday, Oct. 15 2013
Cambodia’s war-crimes court will start hearing closing statements Wednesday in the trial of former Khmer Rouge leaders accused of masterminding one of the worst horrors of the 20th century.
More than three decades after the country’s “Killing Fields” era, the United Nations-backed court is moving closer to a verdict in the case of “Brother Number Two” Nuon Chea, 87, and ex-head of state Khieu Samphan, 82.
