A Chinese hawker barbecues lamb kebabs at his stall in the Wangfujing shopping street of Beijing on February 21, 2013. China is considering a ban on barbecues to help reduce air pollution in built-up areas after heavy smog recently choked large swathes of the country, state media reported. The country's environmental watchdog has issued draft guidelines advising major cities to adopt legislation banning 'barbecue-related activities', risking the ire of street food-loving locals.
