In this photograph taken on June 15, 2013, an Indonesian vendor sells cigarettes at the entrance of the Djarum sponsored Indonesia Open badminton tournament at the Senayan stadium in Jakarta. Djarum, Indonesia's third biggest tobacco company is set to end its nine-year sponsorhip of the tournament, one of the country's top sporting events, as the Badminton World Federation seeks to comply with the policy on tobacco ad bans. While many countries long ago dropped tobacco advertising from sports tournaments, concerts and other cultural events, it is still common in Indonesia. The southeast Asian country has the world's highest percentage of young smokers, according to a World Health Organisation (WHO) report from 2006, which found more than 37 percent of high school and university students smoked while smoking rates have risen six-fold over the last 40 years, with 89 million Indonesians in a population of 240 million smoking today, WHO data shows.
