Former Khmer Rouge jailer 'Duch' on trial

Kaing Guek Eav, also known as "Duch," is the first Khmer Rouge war criminal to be brought before a war tribunal. From 1975 to 1979, he was the head of a notorious prison camp, Tuol Sleng (S-21), where he oversaw the deaths of over 15,000 men, women and children. His trial, conducted by a UN-back tribunal, is being compared to the Nuremburg proceedings following the Second World War. His trial could set the tone for the five other war criminals that are yet to face the tribunal for their roles under dictator Pol Pot.
