Goodbye Cambodia

The ashes of Cambodia's last "god king", the late King Father Norodom Sihanouk, were taken to the Royal Palace on Friday, where they will be laid to rest in the Silver Pagoda.

In a regal procession his remains were marched around the palace as mourners took a final chance to bid the dominant figure of Cambodian politics for most of the 20th century farewell.

Sihanouk passed away almost one year and nine months ago at the age of 89.
