The Khmer Rouge’s Brother Number Two Nuon Chea is being cared for at the Khmer-Soviet Friendship Hospital after being sent for emergency treatment on Tuesday.
While the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) spokesman Neth Pheaktra would not confirm what Chea was suffering from, a doctor said an ulcer on the 93-year-old’s toe had turned black.
The ECCC, commonly known as the Khmer Rouge tribunal, found Chea guilty in November of genocide against the ethnic Vietnamese, the Cham Muslim minority group and former officials in the previous Khmer Republic government.
