The VICE News Capsule is a news roundup that looks beyond the headlines. Today: heavy smog doesn’t stop marathon runners in Beijing, Sweden investigates reports of ‘foreign underwater activity’ in Baltic Sea, death of northern white rhino in Kenya brings species closer to extinction, and not everyone is enthusiastic about the ‘Clean India’ campaign.
