Pollution chokes Hong Kong

High levels of air pollution is exacting heavy toll on health and productivity.

    Hong Kong is famous for its skyline, but that view is often hidden behind a thick blanket of smog.

    Air pollution reached dangerous levels one in every eight days in 2009.

    Researchers say it has already cost the territory more than $14m this year, in health costs and lost productivity.
