Refugees from eastern Cambodia camping outside the Phnom Penh headquarters of the royalist Funcinpec party that won the recent elections held under United Nations supervision. Violent attacks from the losing government party have forced 4,500 people to flee. Yesterday, leaders of the two main political parties agreed to share power and Prince Norodom Sihanouk, the head of state, named his son, Prince Norodom Ranariddh, and Hun Sen, the incumbent prime minister, as joint leaders of the provisional national government.
