Thailand mall reopens days after country’s deadliest mass shooting

NAKHON RATCHASIMA, Thailand –The shopping mall that was the site of Thailand‘s worst-ever mass shooting reopened Thursday, four days after security forces killed a gunman who was holed up inside, ending the bloody rampage.

A total of 29 people were killed by the soldier, who kept police at bay at the Terminal 21 Korat mall in northeastern Thailand for about 16 hours over the weekend before being killed.

More than 200 Buddhist monks presided over a ceremony attended by business owners and shoppers at the centre of the mall in Nakhon Ratchasima, also known as Korat, which included prayers and alms offerings to make merit for the dead.
