INDONESIA HAZE SHUTS SCHOOLS, THREATENS NEIGHBORS

Thick choking smoke caused by forest fires closed schools in parts of Sumatra on Wednesday, and experts say it could threaten Indonesia's neighbors in the next few days as the wind is expected to change direction. The head of the Environmental Impact Control office in Indonesia's Riau province on Sumatra, just across the Strait of Malacca from Singapore and Malaysia, said authorities were working to isolate the fires and prevent more breaking out.
