Overview

Cambodia is known throughout the world for its ancient artistic wonders and for the appalling horrors it suffered as a result of both the US bombing during the Vietnam War, and the Khmer Rouge genocide which claimed the lives of over one million Cambodians. More recently, the United Nations peace operation in the country has also received widespread attention. During the 1980s the country was plagued by a series of rival administrations but since the UN-sponsored peace accord on 23 October 1991 all the country's main political groups, except for the Khmer Rouge, have been working together in a coalition government in an effort to restore the country's shattered economy.
