Thailand Holds Funerals for Victims of Massacre at Child Care Center

HeadlineOct 11, 2022

In Thailand, families of the victims of last week’s massacre at a child care center gathered at Buddhist temples this morning to mark the end of three days of funeral ceremonies honoring their loved ones. A 34-year-old former police officer fatally shot and stabbed at least 36 people, including two dozen children, at the Young Children’s Development Center last Thursday. It’s the deadliest mass shooting in Thailand’s modern history. Meanwhile, two U.S. journalists who work for CNN apologized for their coverage of the deadly attack after entering, without permission, the building where the killings happened. Thai press groups accused CNN reporter Anna Coren and cameraman Daniel Hodge of breaching journalistic ethics.
