King's Return Urged

KIEN SVAY, Cambodia () -- King Norodom Sihanouk was urged Monday to end four months of medical convalescence in China and return home to break a political deadlock paralyzing the country.

Second Premier Hun Sen said the king should end his "self-exile'' and help end a dispute between Hun Sen and the king's son, First Premier Norodom Ranariddh.

Tensions between the co-premiers have soared recently, leading to a firefight between their supporters June 17 in Phnom Penh, the capital, that killed two of Ranariddh's bodyguards.
