Thai children at some military barracks in Bangkok had a chance to handle real rifles and other weaponry as part of activities held to mark annual ‘Children’s Day’ on Saturday. Children were able to climb atop armored vehicles, tanks, and helicopters. All of the weaponry was unloaded, however.

Children’s Day, which falls on the second Saturday of January each year, is held to stress that children are Thailand’s future.
