Tributes flow following death of Cambodian prince

Tributes and condolences have flowed into Cambodia following the death of Prince Norodom Ranariddh, a former prime minister and half-brother to King Norodom Sihamoni.

Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen said he and his wife Bun Rany were heartbroken by the death of his former political rival, adding Ranariddh was an “outstanding royal dignitary” and a member of the royal family who was patriotic and loved the nation, religion and the king.

The exact cause of death was not released but 77-year-old Ranariddh died in Paris on Nov. 28 after a long battle to recover from a 2018 car accident in Cambodia that killed his second wife Ouk Phalla, a 39-year-old classical dancer. They had two children.
