    SINGAPORE: Singapore’s smog problem from forest fires in Indonesia worsened on Wednesday as air pollutant levels reached a 16-year high. Foreign tourists and convention delegates joined Singaporeans in complaining about the smoky haze enveloping the city-state of 5.3 million inhabitants, which welcomed 14.4 million visitors in 2012. The Pollutant Standards Index soared to 172 at 3 p.m., well past the officially designated “unhealthy” threshold of 100, according to the National Environment Agency website. It was Singapore’s worst haze reading since September 1997 when the number peaked at 226.
