Smog Bogs Down Flights in Beijing

BBC News is reporting that Beijing has been bogged with smog, canceling hundreds of flights in the area.

"Fog across parts of northern China meant motorways had to be closed and many drivers kept their headlights on all day," the article reports. "In Beijing the fog was made worse by air pollution and the U.S. embassy there said particulate levels were 'hazardous.'"

The Beijing airport canceled over 200 flights yesterday, Monday, December 5, leaving thousands stranded.

According to local source, Xinhua, flights run by Air China, China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines and Hainan Airlines had to cancel flights.
