Smoking alert: Horrific pictures on packs

Gory pictures that highlight the hazards of smoking will be plastered on every cigarette pack sold in the GCC states.

The pictures will have images of diseased gums and blackened lungs next to a set of healthy lungs. "Both sides of the packet will have a horrific picture that shows the effects of smoking. By the end of 2009, no cigarette pack will be pleasing to look at. The pictures will compel smokers to think of the health complications of smoking.

Every country in the GCC will design its own set of pictures.

Manufacturers will be compelled to follow the instructions of the GCC specification on tobacco control. The amount of harmful chemicals will have to be mentioned
