Summary by Ground News
Khieu Samphan, the last surviving senior leader of Cambodia's Khmer Rouge regime, has failed in his appeal to overturn his genocide conviction. The final verdict brings a close to a court process stretching 16 years, costing $500 million.

An estimated 2 million people died due to mass starvation, political persecution and mass killings, a catastrophic forced evacuation of the capital Phnom Penh.
