Khmer Rouge Leaders Found Guilty of Cambodia Genocide

Two leaders of the brutal Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia are found guilty of genocide.

In the first genocide ruling against any member of Cambodia's brutal Khmer Rouge regime, two leaders have been found guilty. Nuon Chea and Khieu Samphan were on trial at the UN-backed tribunal in Phnom Penh on charges of exterminating Cham Muslims and ethnic Vietnamese.
