Indonesia's smoking ban challenge

25 June 2014 Last updated at 02:29 BST

It forces manufacturers to put graphic health warnings on cigarette packets.

Indonesia is a major tobacco producer, and with more than 50 million smokers it is also the world's fifth-largest tobacco market.

But as the BBC's Kiki Siregar reports, the new laws are unlikely to have a big impact on the demand for cigarettes.
