Cambodian King Norodom Sihamoni and Prime Minister Hun Sen arrived in Beijing on Monday afternoon to bring home the body of King-Father Norodom Sihanouk, who died of illness at the age of 90 early Monday morning in Beijing.

They were greeted at the airport by Chinese officials, including Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi.

Born on Oct. 31, 1922, Norodom Sihanouk reigned over Cambodia from 1941 to 1955 and again from 1993 until his voluntary abdication on Oct. 7, 2004, in favor of his son, current King Norodom Sihamoni.
