China sets air pollution goals

--FILE--A man carries his grandchild, both wearing face masks, as they visit the promenade on the Bund as skyscrapers and high-rise buildings in the Lujiazui Financial District in Pudong are vaguely seen in smog in Shanghai, China, 25 December 2013. China has set new targets for its provinces to reduce air pollution by 5 to 25%, state media said late on Tuesday (7 January 2014), underscoring the governments concern about a source of public anger. China regularly issues directives to try to tackle air pollution in major cities, but these have had limited effect. Former health minister Chen Zhu said air pollution in the country causes premature deaths of 350,000 to 500,000 people yearly, state media reported on Tuesday. Chen wrote the article in a December issue of the Lancet medical journal.
