UNITED ARAB EMIRATES - Hefty fines on people smoking in a car with a child present [AN]


This is one of the penalties included in a new anti-tobacco law that came into effect today in the United Arab Emirates. From now on, shops located near schools will not be allowed to sell tobacco. Newspapers, radio and television stations will not be able to advertise cigarettes. Smoking in closed public places like restaurants and shopping malls will be more difficult.
