Norodom Sihanouk, the former Cambodian king who remained an influential figure in his country's politics through a half-century of war, genocide and upheaval, has died aged 89.
Cambodian government spokesman Khieu Kanharith said Sihanouk died of natural causes in Beijing, where he had travelled to for medical treatment earlier this year.
Prince Sisowath Thomico, a royal family member who was also Sihanouk's assistant, said the former King suffered a heart attack at a Beijing hospital.
