In Brief: KR textbook to reach schools

A textbook on the history of the Khmer Rouge is expected to begin

circulating among high schools across the country in the next few days

as the Ministry of Education finalises their review of its contents.

The book, which was printed with the support of the German embassy,

government. The first publication - 3,000  copies - will be funded by

the Soros Foundation's Open Society.
