Khmer Rouge Kills 22 in Raid on Village

From Times Wire Reports

The Khmer Rouge killed 22 ethnic Vietnamese and wounded an additional 15 people in a strike on a village in central Cambodia, far from the guerrilla group’s home base, that demonstrated the rebels’ power to terrorize in the run-up to nationwide elections. The group may be trying to prove that it did not die last week along with its notorious former leader, Pol Pot. The Interior Ministry said the weekend raid--carried out by an estimated 70 to 80 guerrillas--was led by “Tach,” the son-in-law of Ta Mok, the current Khmer Rouge leader.
