Indonesian soldiers work on a canal system in a peatland forest to improve its saturation to prevent future fires in Pulung Pisau near Palangkaraya, Central Kalimantan, Indonesia October 29, 2015. Indonesia's weather agency failed to predict that the effects of the El Nino weather phenomenon this year would be worse than in 1997, a senior minister said on Wednesday, as the government considers declaring a national emergency due to forest fires. The fires raging across the archipelago have created a haze that has blanketed much of Southeast Asia in recent months and, according to authorities, have left more than half a million Indonesians suffering from respiratory ailments.REUTERS/Darren Whiteside

A weather system has trapped air in the Iranian capital for four weeks, posing a major health risk for people with respiratory problems and pushing up hospital admissions by more than 20 percent, according to the Health Ministry. In an attempt to clear the air, several public holidays were declared and cars can now only circulate on alternate days, squeezing even more people into Tehran's buses and metro.

As Catholics the world over prayed for the recovery of their spiritual leader, Ansa said the 84-year-old Pope's ability to breath without the aid of any respiratory support systems gave rise to "greater optimism" about his health. The Pope was rushed to a Rome hospital for the second time this month on Thursday following a relapse of influenza and renewed respiratory problems.

The view of Tiananmen Gate seen through a iron chain in Bejing April 28,
2003. The usually bustling square, the world's largest, was virtually empty
as tourists and locals stayed away from public spaces for fear of catching
the mystery virus SARS. State media on Monday said 7,672 of the capital's 14
million people were under strict quarantine after the city enacted sweeping
powers to control the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). Meanwhile
the World Health Organisation (WHO) urged officials in China's capital to
tell the public more about how to fight SARS as the number of cases in the
city topped 1,100 and people scrambled to protect themselves. Pictures of

Gate in Beijing April 18, 2003. Six months after a mystery virus emerged in
southern China, and two months after it leapt the borders to spread around
the world to infect 3,200 people, China's top leadership joined the fight
against the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The slow winding
course that lead from denial that the outbreak existed to Communist Party
Chief Hu Jintao finally putting China on a war footing against the spread of
SARS has exposed the Byzantine process that hinders the leadership's
response to crisis. PP03040070 Pictures of the month April 2003
