Cambodians mass in capital to mourn former king
The lavish funeral of Cambodia's revered former king Norodom Sihanouk will begin today.
Officials are expecting more than a million mourners to throng Phnom Penh's streets.
The late monarch died of a heart attack in Beijing in October, at the age of 89.
His body will be paraded through the city atop a golden float shaped like a mythological bird, from the Royal Palace to an ornate, custom-built crematorium in a city park.
Foreign dignitaries including Japan's Prince Akishino and a host of Asian leaders are due to attend the cremation.
