수만 명의 캄보디아인들이 오늘 캄보디아의 공산정권 크메르 루즈의 몰락 30주년을 기념했습니다.

캄보디아 수도 프놈펜에서는 약 4만 명이 올림픽 경기장에 모여 30년 전 베트남 군이 프놈펜에 진입해 과격 공산정권 크메르 루즈를 전복시킨 것을 기념했습니다.

지난 1970년대 4년간의 크메르 루즈 통치기간 동안 약 2백만 명이 처형과 노동, 굶주림 등으로 살해됐습니다.


Thousands of Cambodians celebrated the 30th anniversary of the fall of the murderous Khmer Rouge regime today (Wednesday).

About 40-thousand people gathered in the the capital Phonm Penh's Olympic stadium for a ceremony marking the day Vietnamese forces entered the city and overthrew the ultra-Maoist regime.

The Khmer Rouge killed nearly two million people through starvation, overwork or execution during its four-year rule, which began in 1975.

During the ceremony, Chea Sim, the president of the ruling Cambodian People's Party, praised the Vietnamese forces for saving the country from genocide.

But Chea Sim made no mention of the United Nations-backed tribunal established to try five surviving Khmer Rouge leaders.

Human rights groups have accused Prime Minister Hun Sen of obstructing the tribunal, out of fear that it would expose members of his government who are former Khmer Rouge officials.
