Police on Saturday arrested an unidentified number of people suspected of killing a village headman and his family in Krabi province on Monday night.
Pol Maj Gen Itthipol Achariyapradit, an investigative commander of the Metropolitan Police Bureau, said officers arrested more than one person suspected of the massacre and that interrogators were collecting information from them to reach other accomplices.
The execution-style shootings of village headman Worayuth Sanglang and seven other people, three of them children, took place at his home in Ao Luk district of Krabi. Three others were injured. The slayings happened after men dressed in military camouflage gear held those in the house hostage for eight hours.
