A soldier who killed 20 people in a gun rampage in the Thai city of Nakhon Ratchasima has been shot dead by the security forces.

Jakraphanth Thomma killed his commanding officer before stealing weapons from a military camp.

The suspect continued his attack in a shopping centre in Nakhon Ratchasima, also known as Korat.

He posted material to social media, but his motives for his actions remain unclear. Officials said that the death toll stood at 20, with 42 wounded, revising an earlier total of 21 dead.
