Aug 30 (Reuters) - Canada's National Energy Board on Tuesday suspended Montreal hearings on TransCanada Corp's proposed Energy East pipeline for the rest of the week after protests disrupted the first day on Monday.

The board, Canada's energy regulator, also said in a statement it would not proceed with further sessions until it had considered two motions asking for the recusal of members from the panel considering the pipeline. (Reporting by David Ljunggren; Editing by Bernard Orr)
