Beijing is waging a war against air pollution and it is doing so one barbecue at a time. Authorities in the capital have destroyed more than 500 open-air barbecues “to cut PM2.5” the tiny particulate matter in the air that can enter deep into the lungs.

A media officer at Beijing’s Xicheng district administration bureau said the hundreds of barbecue grills were confiscated over a three—month campaign and cut up so they couldn’t be used again.AP
