During his three decades with Cambodia's infamous Khmer Rouge, Ung Khorn planted land mines, set booby traps and led 200 soldiers into battle √Ī√Ī killing an untold number of people.
Today, he and thousands of other ex-Khmer Rouge who once fought for the movement's Brother No. 1, Pol Pot, are seeking forgiveness and following a new leader: Jesus Christ.
"I had a bitter life when I lived with the Khmer Rouge. ... I caused hardships, committed very vicious and cruel acts," said Ung Khorn, now a missionary in Anlong Veng, Cambodia, who recently helped baptize several dozen former comrades.
