Prince Norodom Sihanouk

Week of Apr. 6, 1970
Prince Norodom Sihanouk is deposed as Cambodia's leader, enraging communists in North Vietnam who relied on the sanctuary he provided them. The threat of expanded warfare in Southeast Asia looms as the U.S. assists the new Cambodian government in trying to expel Viet Cong troops by bombing their bases. Vietnamese civilians flee the country.
