Two Khmer Rouge leaders reject court's authority
Two Khmer Rouge leaders on trial for genocide have told the UN-backed court it has no authority to prosecute them.
The regime's head of state Khieu Samphan said the prosecution case was "monumentally biased" and relied on accounts from newspapers.
Ex-Foreign Minister Ieng Sary reiterated that he had received a royal pardon so should not be on trial.
They are accused of leading a campaign of mass murder in Cambodia from 1975-1979 in which up to 2.2 million died.
