Thai soldier shot dead after killing 26 and wounding many


A soldier has been shot dead by police after gunning down 26 people and wounding 57 in Thailand’s worst mass shooting.

Officials said the soldier first killed two people on a military base and then went on a far bloodier rampage, shooting as he drove to a shopping complex where people fled in terror.

It took armed police 16 hours to end the attack in the north east of the country.
