Sandstorm, Smog Strangle Beijing
Beijing’s first sandstorm of the year arrived during an ongoing bout of smog Wednesday, creating hazardous air conditions in the capital and surrounding regions.
Among the most affected areas was Hebei province’s Zhangjiakou, a city that will host several events of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics.
As the dust pall moved south, more cities were shrouded in brown air, including the northern port city of Tianjin.
