Khmer Rouge Po Chrey Massacre Was Worse Than We Thought

Post by Jamie_Lambo » Sat May 14, 2016 12:34 pm

first hand accounts of some of the slaughters that went on at the start of the khmer rouge takeover
they (surrendered soldiers & civilians posing as soldiers) was all tricked into thinking they was off to see the Prince, they were tied up "for the princes saftey" then lead to the fields and all executed

one chilling story one soldier was saying about how he saw his cousin and niece among the people being unloaded for execution and he had to go run and hide in case they saw him and called out to him to which he would have been killed too, must have been hard times


they say the numbers killed there were more like 9-10,000people and not the 3000 that was publicized
