A Thai social media user holds a sign during a rally calling for the death penalty for rapists, outside a shopping mall in Bangkok July 12, 2014. The petition called for the ruling junta to impose a death penalty for convicted rapists. The rape and murder of a 13-year-old girl on an overnight train in Thailand have prompted a nationwide call for stricter enforcement of rape laws and a weekend rally that will defy military restrictions on public gatherings. Penalties for rape in Thailand range from a fine of up to 40,000 baht ($1,200) to life imprisonment or the death penalty but rape laws are rarely enforced.
