More than 30 cities in northern China, including Beijing, are on a major alert over toxic air moving into the region, the third bout of heavy smog this year.

The Beijing municipal government ordered trucks used to transport construction materials and waste off roads from Monday to Wednesday under the orange alert.

Industrial manufacturers, which are on a government list to curb operations during orange alerts, should automatically comply with the requirements, the government said in a directive issued Sunday.
