Beijing Bans Fireworks During Olympics

From AP:

Beijing has banned fireworks for more than three months this summer as part of a raft of new regulations designed to ensure strict security during the upcoming Olympic Games.

Dealers will be forced to suspend sales in the capital and lock existing stocks in specially designated warehouses from July 1 to Oct. 8, according to an order posted on the Web site of the Beijing Administration of Work Safety.

The rule tightens regulations that ban fireworks in the city center for most of the year to include all of Beijing’s sprawling suburbs.
