WHO releases new report on smoking
A new study from the World Health Organization finds smoking kills 5 million people each year.
The WHO warns that number could rise if countries do not take stronger anti-smoking measures. It adds that the vast majority of the global population, nearly 95 percent, is not covered by laws that ban smoking.
The World Health Organization recommends countries enforce bans on tobacco advertising and raise taxes on tobacco products.
