Nepal government to ban vehicles older than 20 years

This is part of an effort to control air pollution in the country.

    Nepal's government is banning older public vehicles in an effort to better control air pollution.

    The government's decision will throw out around 5000 ageing vehicles, including buses and trucks.

    Some say the move is unfair for people who rely on their wheels to make a living.
