    > BRUSSELS – Poor air quality caused about 400,000 premature deaths in Europe in 2016, the most recent year data is available, and almost every city-dwelling European is exposed to pollution levels that exceed healthy levels, according to a report on Wednesday.

    > Particle pollution in cities has become the target of tougher restrictions after the EU's top court ruled in June that cities needed to act if pollution levels were exceeded in a single black spot rather than based on an average across a region.

    > In July, the European Commission, the EU's executive body, asked the EU's Court of Justice to take action against Spain and Bulgaria over their poor air quality, warning the countries were failing to protect citizens against pollution.
