A soldier in northeast Thailand has killed 'at least' 10 people in a mass shooting, Thai authorities say.
Police said the suspect is still at large, at the time of this blog post.

On Saturday, Facebook says the account of the suspect has been removed, and the social media company says it will remove any content related to the attack that violates its policies.
“Our hearts go out to the victims, their families and the community affected by this tragedy in Thailand. There is no place on Facebook for people who commit this kind of atrocity, nor do we allow people to praise or support this attack,” a Facebook rep said in a statement sent to news reporters on Saturday, as news of the mass shooting in Thailand spread online.
“We have removed the gunman’s accounts from our services and will work around the clock to remove any violating content related to this attack as soon as we become aware of it.”
