At least 38 killed in Thai nursery shooting (BBC live update)
At least 38 people have been killed in an attack at a childcare facility in north-eastern Thailand
More than 20 children are among the dead, with victims as young as two years old
The attack began when a man armed with a gun and a knife stormed into the childcare facility in Nong Bua Lamphu province
The gunman, who killed himself after the shooting, has been identified as former police officer Panya Khamrab
He was dismissed from the police force over drugs offences last year, police say
This is truly horrific. Those poor parents.

This is close to where my wife's mum is from.

I said elsewhere that other countries are now having copycat mass shootings. F*cking tragic that this is happening.

The only light of comfort is that usually there would be 90 children at the centre but due to bad weather and a bus breakdown it was less than a quarter full.

It just beggars belief that someone could do something so horrifically evil.

Just heart breaking.

Latest blood test from the murderer shows no drugs in his system. The b*stard did it in cold blood it would appear.

Not going to comment on the Lucy Letby case as it's an ongoing trial but the stories coming out are just heartbreaking.

IF, and it's a big IF, she's found guilty, it wouldn't be the first time a nurse has used insulin to murder children in a hospital. Beverley Allitt was sentenced to thirty years for it. It would seem to be the poison of choice for medical professionals as it occurs naturally in the body and once it's done its job it degrades.

Can't imagine what it would be like to be one of the bereaved parents in a case like this.
