Beijing lifts air pollution red alert 

A cold front moving in from Russia since Wednesday has caused the smog to weaken in Shanxi, Henan and Shandong provinces. The air quality in Beijing, Tianjin and most parts of Hebei province have also greatly improved.

Emergency measures in the capital, such as odd-even car restrictions, ended on Thursday, and classes also resumed.
