    A former Khmer Rouge prison chief has been found guilty of crimes against humanity in Cambodia. The verdict was reached by a UN-backed war crimes tribunal. The defendant, better known as Comrade Duch, was sentenced to 35 years in prison although the court later reduced it to19 years, taking into account time he'd already spent in detention. He admitted to overseeing the deaths of up to 15,000 prisoners.
