Soldier on shooting rampage kills 12 in Thailand

Bangkok, Feb 8 (TIWN) At least 12 people have been shot dead and many injured by a Thai soldier in Nakhon Ratchasima city, also known as Korat, police said on Saturday.

The suspect reportedly stole an army vehicle and posted photos and video of himself in full tactical gear as the attack was carried out.  He wrote on his Facebook page earlier in the day that "Death is inevitable for everyone." The suspect also posted a picture of what appeared to be his hand holding a gun.   At one point after the shooting had begun, he wrote online, "Should I give up?" before his account became inaccessible.  The soldier opened fire at different locations in the city, which is more than 250km (155 miles) from capital, Bangkok, police spokesman Kissana Phathanacharoen said in a message sent to reporters.
