PHNOM PENH (Reuters) - An international judge at a war crimes court in Cambodia charged another former Khmer Rouge cadre with crimes against humanity on Friday, in a further widening of its net of suspects in the tribunal's most sensitive cases yet.
The charges against 79-year-old Ao An, or Ta An, cover alleged "extermination, persecution on political and religious grounds and other inhumane acts" at detention centers under the late Pol Pot's bloody, ultra-Maoist 1970s rule. At least 1.8 million Cambodians died during that time.
