EU officials fear tobacco lobby may derail anti-smoking law

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - European officials complained on Friday that legislation regulating the sale of tobacco products is being held up in the European Parliament because of intense lobbying by cigarette manufacturers.

The EU Tobacco Products Directive calls for mandatory text and picture health warnings covering 75 percent of the front and back of cigarette packs and would ban the sale of specially flavored cigarettes such as menthol and cinnamon.
