Khmer girl's eye gouged out by brothel owner

"Glance at Pross from her left, and she looks like a normal, fun-loving girl, with a pretty face and a joyous smile. Then move around, and you see where her brothel owner gouged out her right eye." [Photo and text, New York Times.

You can watch a video of Long Pross who is Cambodian and was kidnapped and sold to a brothel here on the NYT site.

The article was written by two-time Pulitzer Prize Winner Nicholas D. Kristof, an Op-Ed columnist for The Times since November 2001. You can find Kristof's blog here.
