At least 34 people were killed in an asylum shooting in Thailand, police said.

Authorities indicated that 23 children were among the victims of the attack carried out by a former policeman in the province of Non-Boas Lampo.

Police said the assailant shot and stabbed a number of children and adults before fleeing, heading to his home, killing his family and then committing suicide.

He added that he was last seen driving a four-door white license plate truck in Bangkok and that it was named Banya Kamrap.
