Bangkok -

Police say the body of a 13-year-old Thai girl has been found after she was raped and killed aboard an overnight train.

The attack has caused a huge uproar in the Southeast Asian nation, where social media users have called for rapists to be executed.

Police Colonel Napanwut Liemsa-nguan says rescuers found the girl's body on Tuesday near the train tracks in Prachuap Khirikhan province, three days after she went missing.

He said police arrested a railway worker who confessed he assaulted and raped the girl before throwing her out of the moving train.

The girl had been travelling from southern Thailand to Bangkok with her two sisters in a sleeping coach.

The train is also popular among backpackers travelling back from Thailand's island and beach resort destinations. - Sapa-AP
