Cambodia has called on US media group Vice to withdraw an article featuring newly colourised photos of Khmer Rouge “killing fields” victims, saying the images were an insult to the dead because some mugshots had been altered to add smiles. Al Jazeera reports that in the article published on Friday, artist Matt Loughrey said his project to colourise images from the notorious Tuol Sleng prison, or S-21, aimed to humanise the 14,000 Cambodians executed and tortured there. However, the article caused a backlash on social media, including accusations that Loughrey was “falsifying history”. The article has subsequently been removed from the Vice website.
