TOKYO

A group of Japanese asthma sufferers who say Tokyo air
pollution made them sick won a 79.20 million yen (US$638,000) lawsuit
against the national government and highway authority on Tuesday.

The seven plaintiffs said the capital's exhaust-choked roadways either
gave them asthma or exacerbated preexisting asthma conditions.
