News Summary: Indonesia to add photo warnings to cigarette packs

Associated Press

CIGARETTE WARNING: Indonesia has issued regulations that will require cigarette packets to bear graphic photographic warnings.

HEAVY SMOKERS: It's a long-delayed measure in a country with one of the highest rates of smoking in the world — the law regulating tobacco was issued back in 2009. Indonesian men rank as the world's top smokers, with two out of three of them lighting up. About 3 percent of women smoke.

NOT THAT STRICT: The regulations were watered down following opposition by tobacco farmers and cigarette companies, and fall far short of those in many Western countries and other Asian markets.
