The former Khmer Rouge leader, Pol Pot, was apparently poisoned by those close
to him, the Bangkok Post reported March 19. A Thai army general said an autopsy report
suggested traces of chemicals were found in his internal organs. He suggested Pol
Pot, who died in Anlong Veng on the Thai border in 1998, was killed by those close
to him after a fall-out during the movement's final days.
