Vehicles older than 15 years prohibited from roads in capital after WHO found the city has worst air quality.

    India's green tribunal has banned vehicles older than 15 years from roads in the capital New Delhi in an attempt to tackle air pollution, after a study by the World Health Organisation found that the city has the dirtiest air in the world.
