KR detainees chat, exercise together

I've been in Pailin for the Center for Social Development's forum (rescheduled from Oct. 17) and want to note a couple tribunal developments that took place in my absence:

* For the first time since they were taken into custody, detainees at the ECCC were allowed to socialize last week. Nuon Chea, Khieu Samphan and Comrade Duch met for around ten minutes, chatting and strolling around the small courtyard at the detention facility.

* Judges determined Ieng Sary and Nuon Chea were fit to stand trial.

An article about the forum in Pailin will be available in tomorrow's Post. Additional thoughts are to come about my trip to the former Khmer Rouge stronghold.牋牋?
