PHNOM PENH, Nov 9 (Reuters) – Cambodia’s national police chief, a close ally of Prime Minister Hun Sen, was killed with three other people in a helicopter crash on Sunday evening, the information minister said. General Hok Lundy (pictured) was on his way from the capital, Phnom Penh, to his native province of Svay Rieng accompanied by a military general and two pilots. “According to the information I received, no one survived the crash,” Information Minister Khieu Kanharith told Reuters. The cause of the crash was unclear. The private helicopter came down in Romduol district, about 80 km (50 miles) southeast of Phnom Penh, officials said.
