Firefighters Attempt To Extinguish Indonesia Forest Fires

PALEMBANG, SOUTH SUMATRA, INDONESIA - OCTOBER 02: A man carries his son as he walks through the haze on the way to his house as a fire burned peatland and fields at Ogan Ilir district on October 2, 2015 in Palembang, South Sumatra, Indonesia. The air pollution or haze has been an annual problem for the past 18 years in Indonesia. It's caused by the illegal burning of forest and peat fires on the islands of Sumatra and Borneo to clear new land for the production of pulp, paper and palm oil. Singapore and Malaysia have offered to help the Indonesian government to fight against the fires, as infants and their mothers are evacuated to escape the record pollution levels.
