Knife-wielding man kills 5 children in Thailand

A man in northern Thailand stormed into a neighbor’s home, hacked five children to death and inflicted multiple stab wounds on a pregnant woman who was watching them, police said Monday. Police said the 24-year-old man, who had a history of mental illness and received regular treatment for depression, became agitated by the noise coming from his neighbor’s home Sunday in a village outside the city of Chiang Mai. The man, identified as Azapa Sriwua, grabbed a 47-centimeter (19-inch) kitchen knife and went after the children first, said Lt. Col. Sombat Kalasuk of the Chiang Mai police station.
