In pictures: Worst mass shooting in Thailand’s history | Al Jazeera

This past Sunday went down in history as Thailand’s worst shooting spree. A soldier killed at least 29 people and wounded 57 people before being fatally shot inside a shopping centre. Angry over a land deal and armed with assault weapons and ammunition, Jakrapanth Thomma went on a rampage, shot his commanding officer and fled in a stolen Humvee. Thomma was shot dead by Thai security forces after a 16-hour standoff at the Terminal 21 shopping centre in Nakhon Ratchasima. The rogue soldier had worked at an army base near the city and near Bangkok, the capital. The media has portrayed Thomma as a gun enthusiast who liked to pose with weapons on social media. Earlier in the day before the shooting, Thomma wrote on his Facebook page that ‘death is inevitable for everyone.’
