NAKHON RATCHASIMA, Thailand: Mourners left flowers and written messages in front of the Terminal 21 shopping centre in northeastern Thailand on Monday (Feb 10), a day after the end of a disgruntled soldier's shooting rampage that killed at least 29 people.

On Monday, a woman held a bouquet aloft, hands folded in prayer outside the mall in Nakhon Ratchasima city as others signed cards and offered comfort to each other.

A candlelight vigil was held on Sunday night as Buddhist monks led prayers and people laid down white flowers in memory of the victims of the attacker, who hit four locations around the city.

"You have this rage, it fills you," said local resident Chirathip Kurapakorn at the vigil.

"It just happened right here in our hometown behind us, like right in our heart of everything. It's just tragic."

Many of those killed in the weekend attack were at the shopping centre, the last stop for the soldier, who held out against an overnight siege with weapons stolen from his army base before being shot dead by security forces on Sunday.
