Cambodia on February 6 officially unveiled a memorial to dozens of foreign and local journalists killed covering the country's 1970-75 war won by the communist Khmer Rouge regime. Led by 'Brother Number One' Pol Pot, who died in 1998, the Khmer Rouge wiped out nearly a quarter of the population through starvation, overwork or execution during its 1975-1979 rule in a bid to forge a communist utopia.
