Bangkok, Feb 15 (TIWN) Thousands of Buddhist monks across Thailand on Saturday led prayer vigils to honour the 29 people who were killed in a mass shooting incident in a mall last week, deemed as the nation's deadliest.

Public prayer ceremonies were held on Saturday, a week after the massacre in the city of Nakhon Ratchasima.

Jakraphanth Thomma, a 32-year-old soldier, carried out the killings during a 16-hour shooting rampage in several locations across the city.

The shootings began when the soldier killed his commanding officer and stole weapons from a military base.
