8 people and three children killed by gunmen in Thailand Krabi province

Vastavam web:  Eight people, including three children, were killed by gunmen in Thailand’s Krabi province, police said today, a mass slaying investigators believe was sparked by a personal conflict.Police say a gang of six or seven men, dressed in camouflage outfits, stormed a house in the southern province around 4:00 pm yesterday.”Around 8pm the owner arrived, all of them (the victims) were handcuffed and blindfolded until midnight when gunmen opened fire,” Chaiwut Buathong, chief of Ao Luek district, told AFP.

Six died at the scene, two others died in hospital, Chaiwut said, adding three of the victims were girls aged under 15.Photos taken by medical workers showed two bodies slumped on a blood-splattered children’s bed, with a teddy bear thrown to one side.”It is under investigation but initially police suspect this is a personal conflict,” Major General Worawit Panprung, from Krabi provincial police, told AFP. Petty arguments and disputes frequently turn deadly but mass organised killings are rare.
