Phnom Penh: Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen yesterday signalled he was not prepared to surrender control of a Khmer Rouge trial to the United Nations.


Speaking after a closed-door party meeting, Mr Hun Sen blasted UN demands for an international 'killing fields' trial as hypocrisy and urged the world to pay more attention to Cambodia's appalling poverty instead.
