Firecrackers and reluctant authorities: Indian capital's smog set to worsen

NEW DELHI – With a toxic smog beginning to envelop New Delhi as winter approaches, residents of the Indian capital are set to make matters a lot worse by burning hundreds of thousands of firecrackers to celebrate the Hindu festival of Diwali early next month.

India, which has the world’s 14 most polluted cities, has made little effort this year to curb the sale of ear-splitting, firecrackers that explode through Diwali night.
