Tehran Air Pollution Here to Stay

Autumn ended on Saturday, but the thick blanket of atmospheric pollution and toxic dust shrouds the skies of the capital city Tehran, once again forcing the shutdown of schools.
Iran Meteorological Organization says air pollution is expected to linger until the weekend unless the helping hand of Nature brings a strong gust of wind to help Tehran’s residents.
According to urban managers, with the increasing density of pollutants in the air, kindergartens and schools of all grades have been ordered to close on Saturday and Sunday, ISNA reported.
According to Mohammad Taqizadeh, a member of Tehran City Council, to alleviate the volume of commutation in the city, the odd-even traffic plan has been reimposed during the two days.
