Khmer Rouge leaders found guilty of Cambodia genocide
They sought to create a self-reliant, agrarian society: cities were emptied and residents forced to work on rural co-operatives. Many were worked to death while others starved as the economy imploded.
During the four violent years they were in power from 1975 to 1979, the Khmer Rouge tortured and killed all those perceived to be enemies - intellectuals, minorities, former government officials - and their families.
It seems they were French educated academics, a legacy of French indochina colonialism?
Has anyone been to the area or visited the memorial sites? is it like Auchwitz? a major tourist attraction?
It appears there was significant debate around if what they did could actually be classed as Genocide

If this is true then this is both disgusting and shocking. It is also a frightening example of how much power the muslim community has in the UK already.

European authorities are providing new details about a cloud of mysterious radioactive material that appeared over the continent last month.
Monitors in Italy were among first to detect the radioactive isotope ruthenium-106 on Oct. 3, according to a fresh report by France's Radioprotection and Nuclear Safety Institute, known as IRSN.
In total, 28 European countries saw the radioactive cloud, the report says.
