Cambodia’s history honors Vietnamese volunteer soldiers

A VOV reporter in Cambodia recently talked to some Cambodian people about their feeling towards Vietnamese volunteer soldiers.

VOV met with Norng Chan Phal at the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum one evening in late 2018. The museum was Security Prison 21 (S-21), a notorious centre of detention and torture that killed at least 20,000 people under the Khmer Rouge.

Norng Chan Phal was one of the four children saved by Vietnamese and Cambodian soldiers when they liberated Phnom Penh in January, 1979. Norng Chan Phal recalled those terrible days in that “hell on earth” 40 years ago.
