CHINA-ENVIRONMENT-POLLUTION-HEALTH

This photo taken on on January 18, 2013 shows the Pudong financial district in Shanghai. Several days of hazardous air quality across large swathes of northern China this week triggered an emergency response which saw schoolchildren kept indoors, factories closed and government cars parked. Experts are urging authorities to take firmer action to confront the consequences of China's rapid industrialisation -- and the spending habits of the middle classes created by its economic boom.
