Body of Pol Pot

The body of Pol Pot lies on a mattress in a small hut near the Thai-Cambodia border April 16. Pol Pot, according to Thai military officials, died April 15 about half a mile from Chong Sangam Pass, Thailand, near the same camp where he was tried by his former Khmer Rouge supporters. His passing allows him to evade prosecution in the deaths of as many as 2 million countrymen. He was 73. (AP Photo/David Longstreath)
