Norodom Sihanouk has said he needs to remain in Beijing for further
treatment for his illnesses. He said no date had been fixed for his
return. In a letter issued Friday, he said Chinese doctors had treated
his cancer - lymphoma B - for a month. "Today, I went to hospital to be
checked with a PET scan and found the cancer is getting healed," he
wrote, praising the "very skilful" doctors. Palace officials said they
did not know when King Father Norodom Sihanouk would return to
Cambodia, adding that he needed more time for treatment.
