BROOKLYN - Four additional Brooklyn schools have decided to close because of fears about swine flu, bringing the total number of flu-related school closures in the borough to eight.

The four most recent closures are Yeshiva Magen David, Yeshiva Shaarei Torah, Masores Bais Yaakov and Yeshiva Tiferes YisRoel.

All the schools made the decision to close on their own and are expected to reopen next week.
