Honda Motor suspended operations for a day at two Thailand factories making cars and motorcycles due to the violent political turmoil that has engulfed Bangkok, a company official said.

“We suspended operation of one plant manufacturing cars and another for motorcycles in Thailand [on Thursday],” a Honda spokeswoman told AFP, adding that the suspension was only currently scheduled for yesterday.

“We’ll decide whether to operate our business on a day-by-day basis, watching the changing situation there,” she said.

Honda has a car manufacturing plant in Thailand’s old capital of Ayutaya and a plant making motorcycles in a suburb of Bangkok.

The Ayutaya plant has an annual production capacity of 240,000 vehicles, manufacturing mostly its Accord sedan and Civic compact cars for sales in Thailand.

Honda closed its office in Bangkok on Wednesday due to the turmoil.

Thailand’s army on Wednesday cracked down and ended a six-week protest by anti-government protesters in Bangkok, triggering a wave of arson attacks in the capital and more clashes.
