2.How did the Khmer Rouge coming to power lead to genocide? In 2007, a Cambodian and international tribunal found the Khmer Rouge guilty of "crimes against humanity, genocide, grave breaches of the Geneva Convention, homicide, torture and religious persecution." 3.Describe a parallel between the actions of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia and Hitler's actions in Poland. Throughout the 1960s, the country was under the control of a monarch until amilitary coup in 1970.
