Thai bourse set on fire

19 May 2010  |  6550 views  |  0 STOP

Thailand's stock exchange and several banks were set on fire today by anti-government protesters as violence in the capital escalated despite the surrender of red shirt leaders.

After forcing the red shirt surrender, Thai officials put Bangkok under curfew but rioters responded by setting the city ablaze, targeting the Stock Exchange of Thailand, several bank buildings, a shopping mall and TV station.

The bourse closed early and will not open for the next two days, shuttering the Market for Alternative Investment, Bond Electronic Exchange and Thailand Futures Exchange.

The exchange says its board of governors will "continuously evaluate events and announce changes as the situation unfolds".
