More than 50 Indonesian companies will have their licenses revoked for their role in causing the haze that blanketed South East Asia earlier this year, the government has said.The forest fires that caused the haze are the result of illegal slash-and-burn practices used to clear land for palm oil and pulp wood plantations.It is the first time the laws banning such practices are being enforced.The pollution has occurred for years, but was particularly bad in 2015.
