Foggy Beijing

, January 31, 2013

A resident wearing a mask cycles past a policeman in front of the giant portrait of former Chinese Chairman Mao Zedong at Tiananmen Square on a foggy day in central Beijing, on January 31. Beijing temporarily shut down 103 heavily polluting factories and took 30 percent of government vehicles off roads to combat high air pollution, state media reported on Tuesday, but the capital's air remained smoggy despite the measures.
