More than 400 schools close doors on Monday

Hundreds of schools in Bangkok have cancelled classes for Monday as demonstrators under the leadership of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) are set to shut down the capital.

The Office of the Private Education Commission has announced that all 207 Bangkok-based schools under its supervision will suspend classes on Monday.

"After that, we will assess the situation on day-by-day basis," the office's secretary general Bundit Sriputtangul said Friday.

The Education Ministry will also close 245 of its Bangkok schools on Monday.
