Phnom Penh, Cambodia - Kingdom of
TOURIST TAKES PHOTO OF A MAP OF CAMBODIA MADE OF SKULLS IN PHNOM PENH.
A tourist takes a photo of a map of Cambodia made of human skulls -
victims of the 1970s Khmer Rouge "killing fields" regime - at the Toul
Sleng genocide museum in Phnom Penh January 9, 2002. Prime Minister Hun
Sen said on Wednesday that the bones of thousands of Khmer Rouge
victims would not be cremated but will remain in the genocide museum as
evidence of atrocities and as places of religious worship for the
estimated 1.7 million people who died under the regime. Many Cambodian
Buddhists want the bones laid to rest as they believe the soul of a
person cannot be reborn until the body and bones are cremated.
