CHINA-ENVIRONMENT-POLLUTION

A Chinese man wears a facemask bearing the image of legendary and self-sacrificing soldier Lei Feng as Beijing is hit by a sandstorm as well as air quality worse than the highest classification of 'hazardous' on February 28, 2013. China celebrates the 50th anniversay of the 'Learn from Lei Feng' self-sacrifice and devotion to the party campaign this year. State media reported that Beijing air pollution levels reached extremely hazardous levels for the second time this week as citizens struggled to protect themselves from the two-pronged hazards of dust and pollution.
