Gunmen Kill Thai Family In Execution-Style
A group of gunmen barged into the home of a local official in southern Thailand and killed eight members of his family, including three children, by shooting them in the head, police said Tuesday.
Gen. Worawit Panprung, police chief of Krabi province, told reporters he believed the killings involved a dispute over land or political issues, but an investigation was ongoing.
Six or seven armed men dressed in clothes resembling official uniforms entered the home of Worayuth Sanglhung, a village headman in Krabi province, on Monday evening, police spokesman
Krissana Pattanacharoen said. They held the 11 residents captive until around midnight, when they shot them in the head before escaping.
Three of the dead were girls under 15 years of age, with the youngest 8.
Three people survived but were seriously injured. Krissana said one was able to provide details about the attack.
Police said the dead included Worayuth, who also used his home as his office.
