In this July 28, 2014, photo, Sok Sambour, 25, works as a receptionist at a hotel after graduating from accounting school. Her parents told her about that era, including exactly how long the Khmer Rouge rule lasted: three years, eight months and 20 days. An elderly neighbor told her that just catching a fish to eat was enough to be accused of betrayal and face almost certain execution. A U.N.-assisted genocide tribunal will deliver a verdict this coming Thursday in the trial of the two top leaders of the communist Khmer Rouge, whose extremist policies in the late 1970s are blamed for the deaths of an estimated 1.7 million Cambodians though starvation, medical neglect, overwork and execution. (AP Photo/Heng Sinith)PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) — A U.N.-assisted genocide tribunal will deliver a verdict this coming Thursday in the trial of the two top leaders of the communist Khmer Rouge, whose extremist policies in the late 1970s are blamed for the deaths of an estimated 1.7 million Cambodians though starvation, medical neglect, overwork and execution.

This undated photo shows Israeli Army 2nd. Lt. Hadar Goldin, 23 from Kfar Saba, central Israel. Israeli army spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said Friday, Aug. 1, 2014 that Goldin was apparently captured by Hamas militants who came through a tunnel from the Gaza Strip and another two soldiers were killed. An hour after Friday's cease-fire started, gunmen emerged from one or more Gaza tunnels and opened fire at Israeli soldiers, with at least one of the militants detonating an explosives vest, said Lerner. Goldin was apparently captured during the ensuing mayhem and taken back into Gaza through a tunnel. (AP Photo/YNet News)GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Israel bombarded the southern Gaza town of Rafah on Saturday as troops searched for an officer they believe was captured by Hamas in an ambush that shattered a humanitarian cease-fire and set the stage for a major escalation of the 26-day-old war.

FILE - This photo released by the New York City Police Department in this May 16, 2008 file photo shows Yitzhak Shuchat. The extradition of a white Orthodox Jewish man to New York City to face hate crime charges over a black man’s attack has renewed questions about the case. Supporters of Shuchat say there’s no evidence of racial hatred in the 2008 street encounter he had with Andrew Charles. (AP Photo/NYPD, File)NEW YORK (AP) — Yitzhak Shuchat, a white member of a civilian patrol group, and Andrew Charles, the black son of a police officer, came face to face in 2008 in a neighborhood with a history of racial strife — that much is certain.
