- +

BURI RAM - A dozen machete-wielding teens, mostly aged 15-16, raided a tertiary school in an attempt to assault the principal in broad daylight on Monday, but were intercepted by an armed security guard who killed one of them and injured two others, ASTV Manager's website reported. 

The attack took place at Buri Ram Nursing School when the school opened for classes and teachers were organising a freshman orientation ceremony.

The attackers, who covered their faces in black silk masks and carried machetes, arrived in two pickup trucks. They ran into the school and tried to attack Watcharapon Thongsiri, the school’s principal, who fled and hid in a building, said ASTV Manager. The incident caused panic to those on the premises and residents who live nearby.
