TEHRAN, Aug. 2 (Xinhua) -- Air pollution monitoring stations of Iran's capital Tehran have recorded more days with ground-level ozone in July, Eghtesad Online news website reported on Sunday.

During the period, Tehran's residents were exposed to high levels of ground-level ozone as a source of air pollution that becomes conspicuous when temperature rises, data published by Tehran Air Quality Control Company was cited as saying by Eghtesad Online.
