26 Sentenced in Raid on Capital Last Year

November 06, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

Twenty-six people were sentenced to jail in the second trial of suspects accused of attempting to topple Cambodia's government last year.

The suspects were given three to 15 years for attempting to overthrow Prime Minister Hun Sen's government with an armed attack on three buildings in the capital, Phnom Penh, on Nov. 24.

Six attackers and one civilian were killed and 12 people were wounded in the predawn raids. An obscure U.S.-based anti-Communist group, the Cambodian Freedom Fighters, claimed responsibility.
