Thailand and Cambodia have revived a cross-border train link after 45 years to boost trade, investment and tourism, the Thai military government said.

Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-Ocha and Cambodian premier Hun Sen presided over the formal opening of the 6.4-kilometer (4-mile) track and a so-called friendship bridge on Monday and rode across the border on a train.
