A man smokes near the Forbidden City on a heavy haze day in central Beijing January 13, 2013. Air quality in Beijing was the "worst on record" on Saturday and Sunday, according to environmentalists, as the city's pollution monitoring centre warned residents to stay indoors with pollution 30-45 times above recommended safety levels.
