Cambodia’s ex-king dies in Beijing: Xinhua

leave a comment »


BEIJING — Cambodia’s former king Norodom Sihanouk, a revered figure in his home country who had suffered from a number of ailments in recent years, died in Beijing on Monday, Chinese state media said. He was 89.

“Norodom Sihanouk has died in Beijing,” Chinese state news agency Xinhua said, citing an unnamed official without giving further details.

The ex-monarch had been a frequent visitor to China, where he received the bulk of his medical treatment.

One of Asia’s longest-serving monarchs, the former king abruptly quit the throne in October 2004 in favour of his son, citing old age and health problems.

His had suffered from a series of health problems recently, including cancer, diabetes and hypertension.

Despite abdicating, the ex-monarch sometimes used his website to communicate with the outside world.

In a message in January, he said he wanted to be cremated upon his death and have his ashes kept in an urn inside the Royal Palace, reversing an earlier wish to be buried.
