Smog in Tehran:
9/11 in a Month

Pollution kills not only kills, but it is a serious threat. Don't let anyone else tell you otherwise. Straight from the BBC:
Air pollution is estimated to have killed nearly 10,000 people in Tehran over a one-year period, including 3,600 in a month, Iranian officials say.

Most of the deaths were caused by heart attacks and respiratory illnesses brought on by smog, they said.
