On January 7th thirty years ago the Khmer Rouge regime officially ended.
It was the end of about 4 years of horror for Cambodia. (I mentioned the beginning of it here,
and the genocide museum here.)
It is a controversial holiday as the saviours of Cambodia were the Vietnamese thought of as
"traditional enemies"of Cambodia. In the lead up to Victory day there was a foiled bomb plot,
talk of tighten security and various people giving their opinion about whether Cambodia
should celebrate this day
and a cartoon. Some photos from the days celebrations
are here: Celebration of Vietnamese Invasion and Occupation. And more about today here:
The Khmer Rouge came to power in 1975 and is accused of killing millions through overwork, execution or starvation before it was ousted by a Hanoi-backed military force in January 1979.
