A soldier has killed 20 people and injured many more in a gun rampage in the Thai city of Nakhon Ratchasima.

The suspect, whose motives remain unclear, posted images of his attack on social media sites.

7. Some reports say he was a fan of Anders Behring Breivik

The gunman - who first killed his commander - wrote on Facebook that he was seeking "revenge" and had recently posted pictures of himself wielding a gun in full uniform and showing off his firearms.

It appeared the gunman was a fanatic of Norwegian right-wing terrorist Anders Behring Breivik.

In one chilling video, he said: "I'm tired now.. I can't move my finger anymore."
