Ukrainian woman stripped naked at Beirut airport in protest at smoking ban

A Ukrainian national took her clothes off on Saturday at Rafik Hariri International Airport to protest the smoking ban.

The woman was swiftly detained by airport security for questioning.

The ban came into effect in September in accordance to Law 174, which passed a year ago.

The National Tobacco Control Program of the Health Ministry says more than 3,500 Lebanese die each year from tobacco-related diseases.
