What of the hostages?

The Editor,

During these days we are all watching at the negotiations regarding the destiny and

future of the Khmer Rouge.

But we would like to question the absence of official or unofficial news regarding

the hostages - no matter their nationality, who still remain in Khmer Rouge hands.

We think that something more could be done for them, and perhaps media and newspapers

are the best instruments to express the anxiety we all are feeling for them.

Some lines every day in capital letters on the front page, maybe just a few words

such as: "What about hostages?" could have a strong impact.

It is just a small thing but we could not do more than remember that innocents are

paying for their innocence.
- Gianpasquale Polloni, Margherita Maffii, Phnom Penh.
