Lahore declared the world’s most polluted city

Aljazeera says The Pakistani city of Lahore has been declared the most polluted city in the world by an air quality monitor, as residents choking in acrid smog plead with officials to take action.

Lahore had an air quality ranking of 348 on Wednesday, well above the hazardous level of 300, according to IQAir, the Swiss technology company that operates the AirVisual monitoring platform.

“Children are experiencing breathing diseases … for God’s sake, find a solution,” labourer Muhammad Saeed told the AFP news agency.

Air pollution has worsened in Pakistan in recent years, as a mixture of low-grade diesel fumes, smoke from seasonal crop burn off, and colder winter temperatures coalesce into stagnant clouds of smog.
