Air pollution chokes Sarajevo

Residents in the Bosnian capital urged to stay in as pollution is so heavy that measuring equipments cannot cope.

    Bosnia's capital Sarajevo has been enveloped in smog for days.

    Forecasters say the higher-than-normal amount of pollution will clear in the coming days, but the risk to residents' health is expected to continue into winter.

    The number of particles produced by car exhausts can be so high it causes the measuring equipment to break down.
