MEPs back tough new tobacco rules

MEPs have approved sweeping new regulations governing the multibillion-euro tobacco market, including limits on electronic cigarettes, bigger warnings on cigarette packs and a ban on menthol and other flavourings in a bid to further curb smoking.

The European Parliament vote in Strasbourg came after months of bitter debate and an unusually strong lobbying campaign by the tobacco industry, which decries the regulations as disproportionate and limiting consumer freedom. The parliament dismissed many of the industry's arguments, but agreed on watered-down versions of some of the most sensitive legislation.
