CAMBODIA, formerly called Kampuchea, is a southeast Asian state bounded by Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam, and its southern coast lies on the Gulf of Thailand. The country was devastated by its involvement in the Vietnam War (1960-75), followed by the brutal regime of the Khymer Rouge under Pol Pot (1975-79) when it thought that as many as two million people were killed.
