Singapore to ASEAN: Act on haze

Singapore is urging fellow ASEAN members to take “firm and decisive action” against the lethal haze still spreading across the region ahead of a group summit in Malaysia next month. The haze has killed at least 10 in Indonesia and caused respiratory illnesses in half a million, while winds have carried the smoke into Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines this year.
