PHNOM PENH: A Cambodian prince who was a candidate in upcoming general elections was transferred to a hospital in neighbouring Thailand after being injured in a road crash that killed his wife, said a fellow politician and a Cambodian news agency.

Prince Norodom Ranariddh, 74, was in a convoy along with senior members of his Funcinpec party heading toward Sihanoukville in southwest Cambodia on Sunday morning when a taxi travelling in the opposite direction slammed into his SUV, said a senior party member in the group.
