BANGKOK: A fleet of drones, trucks and small planes sprayed water to try to reduce air pollution around Bangkok while the city’s governor invited critics to brainstorm better ideas to improve the air quality in the Thai capital.

Unhealthy pollution levels forced many city schools to close since Wednesday and residents are now wearing air-filtering masks while they’re outdoors.
