Tribunal into Cambodia killings to begin

10 July 2006 08:02

A United Nations-backed tribunal in Cambodia is due today to begin an investigation into the genocide known as 'The Killing Fields' in which an estimated 1.7 million people died in the 1970s.

Prosecutors are to question surviving members of the Khmer Rouge, who were in power at the time.

The investigation follows six years of investigations between the UN and the government in Phnom Phen.
