Kuala Lumpur/Jakarta (dpa) - Malaysia suspended classes in schools in the capital and surrounding areas Monday as haze triggered by Indonesian forest and plantation fires worsened.

The air pollutant index in Kuala Lumpur and several neighbouring states reached "unhealthy levels," the Education Ministry said.

Prime Minister Najib Razak urged people in haze-affected areas to minimize outdoor activities and to use face masks when going out of their houses.

It is the second time this month that schools in the area around the capital have closed due to the haze, which is an annual hazard for Indonesia's neighbours Malaysia and Singapore at this time of year.

The closures came after ministers from Indonesia and Singapore argued over who was to blame for not stopping the fires.
