The body of Norodom Sihanouk was cremated Monday night in an elaborate Buddhist ceremony, under bright lights and stars, surrounded by tens of thousands of the people who looked up to him as a leader for more than six decades. The central quarter of Phnom Penh near the Royal Palace was filled with Cambodians, scores of them weeping. VOA Khmer's Say Mony spoke from the cremation site with VOA Khmer's Poch Reasey in Washington.
