After the May 1993 election, the new army brought together forces previously under the control of former Prime Minister Hun Sen (or CPP), the National United Front for an Independent, Neutral, Peaceful, and Cooperative Cambodia (FUNCINPEC), and the Khmer People’s National Liberation Front (KPNLF). The newly formed armed force started offensive attacks against the Khmers.1 The Khmer Rouge fighters were not part of the new armed force. No reintegration of former combatants into civilian life took place.
