Gulf countries adopt graphic warnings

07 Feb 2012

The warnings will depict different illnesses and cancers caused by smoking, and cover 50 percent of the package’s front and back, with an Arabic warning on the front and an English warning on the back.

Misleading terms like “light”, “mild”, “low tar” and “extra light” will also be banned.

There will be two specific warnings for shisha (water pipe) tobacco.

The new standard will replace the old one, which covered only about 16 percent of the package’s front.
