Iran postponed two premier league football matches on Sunday, state media said, as air pollution more than twice the acceptable level persisted in the capital.Severe air pollution earlier this week had already led authorities to close schools for three days in and around the capital, where an estimated 14 million people live.Last December, almost 400 people were hospitalized with heart and respiratory problems caused by heavy pollution in Tehran, with nearly 1,500 others requiring treatment.
