Khmer Rouge prison chief Duch found guilty

Former Khmer Rouge prison chief Duch has been found guilty of crimes against humanity by Cambodia's UN-backed war crimes tribunal.

Duch, 67, whose full name is Kaing Guek Eav, was sentenced to 35 years in prison.

But Duch may not serve the full sentence, taking account of time already served and five years in which he was considered to have been held illegally.

Rachel Harvey reports from Phnom Penh.
