Oslo: Oslo will ban diesel cars from the road for at least two days this week in a bid to combat rising air pollution, angering some motorists after they were urged to buy diesel cars a few years ago.

The ban, announced by the city on Monday, will go into effect on Tuesday on municipal roads but will not apply on the national motorways that criss-cross the Norwegian capital.

Motorists violating the ban will be fined $176.
