Singapore: Air Pollution Closes Schools 

Singapore will close all primary and secondary schools on Friday as worsening pollution causes air quality to deteriorate, the Ministry of Education said Thursday. Smoke from slash-and-burn farming methods in Indonesia has created a choking haze over Singapore for weeks. The three-hour Pollutant Standards Index reading rose to 314, and the 24-hour figure was 223 to 275 on Wednesday night. A reading over 300 indicates “hazardous” air quality, and 201 to 300 is “very unhealthy,” the National Environment Agency said.
