L'Italia vista con gli occhi degli italiani

OMAGGIO A TERZANI : la Cambogia, le nuove elezioni e un passato da ricordare » Guns

Tiziano Terzani, one of the greatest Italian reporters, witnessed the Cambodia’s downfall. In 1979 he tried to cross Poipet, the border between Thailand and Cambodia, to record the Khmer Rouge’s coup, and there some young warriors arrested him under the charges of being an American. He stood a whole day leaning against a wall under the threat of the Khmer Rouge guns. He saved himself thanks to his knowledge of the Chinese language: a Chinese merchant, who knew the khmer dialect, convinced the kidnappers to release him.
In his books he remembers the kid who grinned pointing the gun against his chest.
