Cambodia's young population is very aware of its grim history, with almost every family suffering losses. Most Cambodians still want justice and to see the U.N.-backed court find the recalcitrant Nuon Chea, Pol Pot's right-hand man, and ex-President Khieu Samphan, guilty of crimes against humanity, but the court has been mired in disputes, resignations, funding shortages and accusations of political interference and has to date delivered just one verdict. The court will deliver verdicts for Noun Chea and Khieu Samphan on August 7, 2014. Picture taken August 5, 2014. REUTERS/Damir Sagolj(CAMBODIA - Tags: POLITICS CIVIL UNREST CRIME LAW)
