BBC: Airport To Be Closed Until 15 December

There are
unconfirmed reports of a deal to open an airport closed by protests. But
there is not that much hope for the thousands of Scandinavians stranded in Thailand.
   
Anti-government protests at Bangkok‘s
main Suvarnabhumi international airport, and the smaller Don Mueang airport,
have stranded tens of thousands of travellers, bringing the country’s important
tourism industry to a standstill.
   Agreement was reached to resume cargo flights from
Suvarnabhumi on Tuesday, and a leader of the anti-government protesters was
reported to say that passenger flights would be allowed as well.
   Protesters angry at the decision demonstrate outside
court, while those occupying the airports celebrate
   Officials said the airport would be closed to
passenger flights until 15 December, reports the BBC’s Quentin Somerville at
Suvarnabhumi.
   Both airports have been occupied by the
anti-government People’s Alliance
for Democracy (PAD) since last week.
