India's Supreme Court has banned fireworks in the capital Delhi, in the run-up to the Hindu festival of Diwali.

The court said it wanted to test if banning fireworks would make a difference to Delhi's air quality, ranked among the worst in the world.

The ban on the sale and distribution of firecrackers will last until the 1st of November. Diwali falls on the 18th of October.

Diwali, the most important Hindu festival in north India, celebrates the victory of good over evil.
