Royal family relaxes in Siem Reap

King Norodom Sihanouk and Queen Monineath Sihanouk arrived in Siem Reap on Feb 6

for a bit of a relax for a couple of weeks - they are shown [left] playing with

their dog, Miki.

The King has also begun another of his favorite

pastimes, moviemaking.

The King has begun filming at the Bayon. The

subject is as yet secret, and the set was closed, in classic Hollywood

style.

On Feb 5 the King had a public audience in Prey Veng, where he

repeated his pleas for the Khmer Rouge to lay down their arms.

He said:

"I beg again for His Excellency Pol Pot, Ieng Sary, Noun Chea, Ta Mok and Khieu

Samphan to please our people.

"I ask them to stop using violence, to stop

fighting, to stop killing, to stop kidnapping and to stop burning

houses.

"I will get down on my knees if they stop," he said, "not because

I respect them but because they would follow my appeal."

The King said it

was not difficult for them to follow Buddhist teaching of non-violence. "And if

they do... we will have peace."
