BANGKOK (Reuters) - A Thai soldier killed at least 20 people in a shooting rampage on Saturday in the city of Nakhon Ratchasima in the northeast of Thailand, defence ministry spokesman Kongcheep Tantrawanit told Reuters.

Kongcheep did not give a figure for the number of wounded. He said it was unclear whether the gunman had taken hostages inside the shopping mall, where he is still thought to be at large.
