Khmer Rouge murderer arrested

The last of the four former Khmer Rouge soldiers involved in the murder of British mine decommissioning expert Christoffer Howes in 1996 has finally been arrested according to Daily Mail. Howes was kidnapped together with 20 other deminers. The rest of the team were in time released, but Howes and his Cambodian translator, Huon Huot, were shot. Howe's remains were found in 1998. According to the arrested soldiers, the murder was on the command of the military commander Ta Mok, who died in July 2006.

During the turbulent years of the 1990's the Khmer Rouge killed at least ten foreign tourists and workers.
