Memorial: Stupa to honour war journalists

The city is set to build a monument to dozens of local and foreign journalists killed covering the country’s 1970-75 civil war, Minister of Information Khieu Kanharith said Sunday. In a letter to Phnom Penh Governor Kep Chuktema, he said a ceremony will be held next month in advance of its construction, coinciding with an April 20-23 reunion of foreign correspondents who covered the war. At least 37 journalists – from Japan, France, the United States, Sweden, Germany, India, Laos, Australia and Cambodia – were killed or disappeared during the conflict between the US-backed Lon Nol government and the Khmer Rouge, which captured Phnom Penh in April 1975.
