Thailand’s military has canceled plans to impose a curfew in parts of Bangkok, where troops remain locked in a tense confrontation with anti-government protesters.
Army officials told reporters Sunday that the government no longer saw a need to enforce a curfew. The army had said earlier it would impose a curfew later in the day. No explanation was given for the reversal.
Meanwhile, officials announced Sunday that Bangkok schools will not reopen Monday after summer holidays because of deadly clashes that have left at least 25 people dead. Authorities said the schools would reopen on May 24.
