Long-ruling Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen recently revealed that his wife had secretly built a stupa for his interment at a public pagoda in Phnom Penh, but said he rejects being buried at the site because he is "afraid of gangster ghosts living there." Critics say the 70-year-old strongman more likely fears the fate of authoritarian rulers whose people turn on them after they die and destroy their monuments.
