Prosecutor dispute at Khmer trial
Disagreements have arisen at the Khmer Rouge tribunal in Cambodia over whether more people should be investigated.
The UN-appointed prosecutor asked judges to intervene after he and his Cambodian counterpart were unable to move forward. [The UN prosecutor wants more people investigated.]
It is the first time that international and Cambodian officials have had a public disagreement since the tribunal started two years ago.
The court is looking into the deaths of some two million people in the 1970s.
