Sihanouk to return

King Father Norodom Sihanouk says he and his wife, Queen Monineath, will return to Phnom Penh in May, according to his website.

Sihanouk, who abdicated in 2004, accepted Prime Minister Hun Sen's invitation to return, which was issued last week. The former king had been receiving treatment for stomach cancer in Beijing since August 2005. He had recently been reported as saying that political tensions made it unsafe for him to return.
