Mother Theresa in Phnom Penh

The Albanian-born Nobel Peace Prize winner paid a lightening visit to the capital

from Nov. 10 -12 after a five-day stay in Hanoi. This was her second visit to the

country and included calls on Premier Prince Norodom Ranariddh and Foreign Minister

Norodom Sirivuth. The world-renowned "friend of all the poor" spent most

of her time with her nine fellow Sisters of Charity who maintain two communities

- one in Phnom Penh on Monivong Blvd. and a second in Chan Chao past the airport.
