King Norodom Sihanouk announced Feb 19 that he would return to his homeland in
April on condition that he would be trated justly here. An angry Sihanouk abruptly
left Cambodia for Beijing last month after a series of attacks on him from supporters
of Second Prime Minister Hun Sen.
Hun Sen has appealed for Sihanouk to return, saying his presence was needed for the
election and for democracy.
