Cambodian monks come to pay their respect for the late former King Norodom Sihanouk in front of the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh on January 31, 2013 ahead of a lavish funeral procession on February 1 which will see his body carried from the royal palace in Phnom Penh to a funeral pyre in a nearby park and is expected to draw more than one million mourners to the capital's streets. Sihanouk, who abdicated in 2004 after steering Cambodia through six decades marked by independence from France, civil war, the murderous Khmer Rouge regime and finally peace, died of a heart attack in Beijing on October 15, 2012 and will be cremated on February 4.
