Khmer Rouge leader: “a killing machine”

Kaing Guek Eav, better known as Duch, is the first Khmer Rouge leader to have been convicted by an international tribunal. He was found guilty of crime against humanity and war crimes. Tens of thousands of people are thought to have died during the communist regime in the late 70s.

Duch was on the front page of several international newspapers today, including the Cambodian daily The Phnom Penh Post, The Times, the French Christian newspaper La Croix and the Asian edition of The Wall Street Journal.
 
In other news, 19 people were crushed to death during the annual Love Parade in Germany. The Hamburger Morgen Post describes the incident as the “death parade” whilst The Daily Mail interviewed a British DJ who claims he was “told to play even as revellers were dying”.  
 
And finally, the website Wikileaks revealed thousands of secret US military files about the Afghan war. Some of those documents were also published by The Guardian, The New York Times and the German weekly Der Spiegel.
