Air pol­lu­tion ‘very high’

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - NATION DIGEST -

Road­side sta­tions in Cen­tral, Causeway Bay and Mong Kok reg­is­tered very high lev­els of air pol­lu­tion on Thurs­day morn­ing, with the Causeway Bay Air Pol­lu­tion In­dex reach­ing 186. The En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion Depart­ment said that air pol­lu­tants were not dis­pers­ing as the trop­i­cal cy­clone Trami weak­ened the wind, and the sunny weather also wors­ened the pol­lu­tion level. said that nine or­ga­ni­za­tions and in­di­vid­u­als were named as de­fen­dants, in­clud­ing the ex-mayor of Manila and the po­lice chief. He said the law­suit faces dif­fi­cul­ties in­clud­ing how to serve the writ, whether Hong Kong is a suit­able venue and the sov­er­eign im­mu­nity is­sue.
