New Briefs: Security strengthened

Security has been beefed up in Phnom Penh for the return home of King Sihamoni from

Beijing with his parents former King Norodom Sihanouk and Queen Norodom Monineath

and for the October 29 coronation ceremony.

Khieu Sopheak, Ministry of Interior spokesman said he could not speculate on the

number of additional police and military police employed.

"I just hope that nothing [bad] happens during the ceremony.

It is an important historic event for Cambodia," said Sopheak. "Our country

no longer has [external] enemies, but we are concerned about internal security."
