Khmer Rouge killers weren't 'bad people'

Calgary Herald ] 6 Dec

Khmer Rouge leaders, under whose rule as many as two million people died, were not "bad people," the regime's "Brother No. 2" said Monday.

Nuon Chea, 85, told a UN-backed tribunal that Cambodia's neighbour Vietnam was to blame for the genocide.
"I don't want the next generation to misunderstand history," he told the trial of three former leaders of the communist movement that ruled from 1975 to 1979. "I don't want them to believe the Khmer Rouge are bad people, are criminal. Nothing is true about that."
