The first anniversary of late King Father Norodom Sihanouk’s death was marked Tuesday by heavy security in Phnom Penh, while a new statue of the beloved monarch near Independence Monument was off limits to the public for much of the day. Protected by hundreds of military police and security guards, Prime Minister Hun Sen and senior CPP officials paid their respects at the statue in the morning, while King Norodom Sihamoni, Queen Mother Norodom Monineath and other members of the royal family held a separate, smaller ceremony at the Royal Palace.
