By TASSANEE VEJPONGSA and DAVID RISING BANGKOK (AP) — A former police officer facing a drug charge burst into a day care center Thursday in Thailand, killing dozens of preschoolers and teachers and then shooting more people as he fled. At least 36 people were slain in the deadliest rampage in the nation’s history. The assailant, who was fired earlier this year, took his own life after killing his wife and child at home. Photos taken by first responders showed the school’s floor littered with the tiny bodies of children still on their blankets, where they had been taking an afternoon nap. The images showed slashes to their faces and gunshots to their heads and pools of blood. A teacher told ThaiPBS public broadcaster that the assailant got out of a car and immediately shot a man eating lunch outside, then fired more shots.

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Topline King Charles III became Britain’s new monarch immediately after the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, but his coronation—an ancient ceremony in which he will be officially crowned at Westminster Abbey—has been tentatively scheduled for June 3 next year, anonymous government sources told Bloomberg on Wednesday. Key Facts Even before becoming king, Charles had long planned to slim down the monarchy in an effort to make the ancient institution more modern, more cost-efficient and less flashy, an approach that is widely believed to have influenced plans for his coronation, which has reportedly been planned for years under the code name Operation Golden Orb .
