Situation in Bangkok worsening

Situation in Bangkok worsening

First shots have been fired and two people have been injured.

To put the icing on the cake, PAD has closed Suvarnabhumi airport in Bangkok.
The Suvarnabhumi Airport has been ordered closed after PAD protesters seized key entrance and other areas.

Analysts say Thai protesters trying to provoke violent response from authorities

In the meantime Prime Minister Somchai Wongsawat has stood firm on his decision not to step down or dissolve the House of Representatives despite the latest rally staged by anti government protesters, government spokesman Nattawut Saikua said Tuesday.

The stalemate continues and a peaceful solution seems to be further away as days or hours pass.

This doesn't look good at all and I wonder where this will bring Thailand. Closing the airport is not sending the right signals to the rest of the world.

Closing down the airport. no not a good signal, but a very strong economical thing to take over.

Just wonder what would happen if you would try to close down Schiphol or Heathrow or Frankfurt.............

I would like to know that also. I think in Amsterdam they are very glad. Quiet at last.

Hi Eric,

That happened just now? So far I only heard that British Airways cancelled flights to Bangkok.
