Greek diplomat killed in Kanchanaburi train


KANCHANABURI, Nov 26 — A Greek diplomat was killed in a freak railway accident today when she fell from a moving train in Kanchanaburi province and was apparently dragged to her death.

The victim was identified Aristea Liapi, an attache at the Greek Embassy in Bangkok.

Investigating authorities suspected that the handle of her traveling bag caught on the railway boarding stair as she attempted to alight from Train 257 on the Thon Buri-Sai Yok Waterfall line, causing her to be dragged by the train and be run over.

Her body was recovered at the 176/16 kilometre marker in Sai Yok district’s Loom Soom subdistrict.
