Pol Pot's deputy Nuon Chea deemed fit for war crimes trial

Pol Pot's former deputy Nuon Chea is fit to continue with his trial for war crimes and genocide, doctors told Cambodia's Khmer Rouge court yesterday following the death of a co-defendant. "From a physical point of view, I felt he is well enough to continue with the trial," Professor John Campbell, a geriatrician from New Zealand, told the UN-backed tribunal.
