Cambodia Holds Wreath-Laying Ceremony on Anniversary of Former King’s Death

PHNOM PENH – Top government officials held a wreath-laying ceremony on Saturday in the Cambodian capital to mark the fourth anniversary of the death of the country’s former monarch.

Ministers and other senior government figures were among those in attendance at the commemorative event, which took place next to a memorial statue of the late Norodom Sihanouk, who died of a heart attack at the age of 89 on Oct. 15, 2012.

At his statue in a public park in Phnom Penh, officials took turns to lay floral wreaths in memory of the monarch, an epa journalist reported.

Elsewhere in the country, religious ceremonies were held to pray for him, according to Cambodia’s state news agency AKP.

Sihanouk, who first came to the throne in 1941, held the role of king father at the time of his death.

Despite long periods of exile and his abdication in 2004 in favor of his son, King Norodom Sihamoni, Sihanouk remained an influential figure throughout decades of upheaval in Cambodia.
