Cambodia...Live or Die?

The Vietnamese invaded Cambodia due to a border dispute and overthrew the Khmer government. Before that, the world denied help for the genocide. The genocide convention had not yet been signed so they did not feel the need to help. After the fact, the Infrastructure of Cambodia was almost destroyed due to the genocide. Civil unrest, hunger, and devastation persisted. Most intellectual people had been killed and countless women were widowed and children were orphaned. There was very little help given to them which made recovery difficult. The government had to worry about groups like the Khmer Rouge. They finally signed a peace agreement with the Khmer Rouge. They began trials for those in the Khmer Rouge in 1998.
