Cambodia's King Sihanouk to be cremated


Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to watch the cremation of the former Cambodian King, Norodom Sihanouk, on Monday.

The cremation will be marked with an elaborate ceremony in the capital, Phnom Penh.

King Sihanouk died of a heart attack in Beijing at the age of 89. His embalmed body has been lying in state at the royal palace for three months to allow people to pay their respects.

Jonathan Head reports from Phnom Penh.
