PHNOM PENH, Cambodia – The head of the Khmer Rouge’s largest and most notorious torture center appeared in court Tuesday in the first public session of the long-delayed U.N.-backed tribunal probing the regime’s reign of terror in the 1970s.

The 4-year regime of the Khmer Rouge resulted in 1.7million deaths. Pol Pot, the dictator responsible for it, died in 1998 without ever being brought to trial.

I have no idea what delayed the trials for 30 years, but I’m glad to see that they’re finally going forward.
