King’s body returns home. Mourners burn incense and offer prayers Wednesday at Cambodia’s Royal Palace in Phnom Penh in memory of King Norodom Sihanouk. Sihanouk, who served as the nation’s prime minister and twice as king before abdicating the throne for good in 2004, died Monday of a heart attack in Beijing. Sihanouk’s body was returned to his homeland Wednesday, and hundreds of thousands of mourners packed tree-lined roads in Phnom Penh ahead of the royal funeral. His casket was carried on an elaborate motorized float from the airport to the Royal Palace, where Sihanouk will lie in state for three months. (Associated Press)
