An ex-Khmer Rouge prison chief has been charged with crimes against humanity by a UN-backed tribunal in Cambodia.

Kang Kek Ieu, also known as Duch, was in charge of the notorious S21 jail in the country’s capital, Phnom Penh.

He ran S21, a notorious jail where about 1,400 men, women and children were kept, and many of them brutally tortured.
