Hundreds treated over Tehran smog
More than 1,600 people have been taken to hospitals in Tehran as pollution in the Iranian capital reaches critical levels, health officials have said.
Hospitals have reported increased cases of heart attacks and breathing problems, while many residents are complaining of fatigue and headaches.
The Pollution standard Index reached a level of 160, considered to be in the 'very unhealthy' level.
Blame is being directed at the more than 2m vehicles in the city, many more than 20 years old.
