A Cambodian military official said a British mine-clearance expert, Christopher Howes, believed to have been kidnapped by the Khmer Rouge in late March, had escaped.

"He escaped, I don't know when," said Major-General Tom Sambol. He added that the Armed Forces Deputy Chief of Staff, Lieutenant-General Nhiek Bun Chhay, had gone to northern Cambodia to bring Mr Howes to Phnom Penh. Reuters - Phnom Penh
