Cambodian sisters, 98 and 101, reunited after 47 years

Two Cambodian sisters – aged 98 and 101 – have been reunited for the first time in 47 years after each thinking the other had died during the Khmer Rouge’s 1970s reign of terror.

Bun Sen, 98, was also reunited with her 92-year-old brother, who she thought had passed away, a local NGO said.

The two sisters last saw each other in 1973, two years before the Pol Pot-led communists took control of Cambodia.
