Cambodian royal officers carry the coffin of former king Norodom Sihanouk to put it on a royal truck during its arrival at Phnom Penh international airport October 17, 2012. Tens of thousands poured into Cambodia's capital to witness the procession on Wednesday of the body of Sihanouk, a revered figure who ruled through the triumph of independence to the tragedy of its brutal civil war. Mourners dressed in white lined the 10-km (6-mile) route to welcome the return of Sihanouk, the flamboyant former monarch who died at 89 of heart failure on Monday in Beijing, his residence since abdicating eight years ago.
