Khmer Rouge leaders to appeal conviction
(08-07 13:24)

Two former Khmer Rouge leaders convicted Thursday for crimes against humanity by Cambodia's UN-backed court will appeal the verdicts and life jail terms, their lawyers said.
"We will appeal the verdict and sentence... it is unjust for my client. He did not know or commit many of these crimes," Son Arun, a lawyer for Nuon Chea, 88, told reporters.
