US authorizes embassy members to leave

The US State Department has authorized a departure for family members of its embassy employees as the bloody confrontation between the government and the anti-government protesters sliding into the third month.
The Department of State has issued a statement that if any members of the embassy staff need to leave the country they could be subsidized strictly on voluntary basis as the employees would still stay in place.

The US Embassy will be closed to the public not only Monday but on Tuesday. Inquires about visa services and American citizens services could be access to embassy Facebook, its spokesman said.

Ambassador Eric John will also host a Town Hall meeting for the American community on Tuesday, the second in two weeks.

Other embassies including Australia would also be closed to visitors on Monday. All United Nations affiliate offices in Bangkok would also be closed on Monday.
