Khmer Rouge: Brother of Pol Pot dies at 84: police

Khmer Rouge
The last surviving brother of Khmer Rouge leader Pol Pot died last week in Kampong Thom province at the age of 84, local authorities said. Saloth Nhep – a younger brother of Saloth Sar, better known as Pol Pot – died last Thursday at his home in Kampong Thom’s Prek Sbov village, Stung Sen district, Stung Sen police Chief Nhem Chhunly said. Family members planned to hold a funeral for Saloth Nhep on Thursday, Nhem Chhunly added. “He worked as a farmer and lived with his family in a small house that was built by his children,” Nhem Chhunly said. Noeun, the police chief of Stung Sen’s Ou Kanthor commune, who goes by only one name, said Saloth Nhep lived with five children, all of whom were farmers.
