Hundreds of taxi drivers protested in New Delhi on May 2 against a ban on diesel cabs, the latest initiative aimed at improving air quality in the world's most polluted capital. India's top court on April 30 ordered taxis run on the dirty fuel off the city's roads, refusing industry requests for more time to switch to greener compressed natural gas (CNG). Many of Delhi's taxis already run on CNG, but the ban will impact about 30,000 traditional cabs and some working for app-based Uber and Ola services, according to taxi operators. / AFP PHOTO / CHANDAN KHANNACHANDAN KHANNA/AFP/Getty Images
