GENEVA, Aug 26 – Governments should ban the sale of e-cigarettes to minors, the World Health Organization said Tuesday, warning that they pose a “serious threat” to foetuses and youths.

The UN health body also recommended that the cigarette-shaped electrical devices be banned from public indoor spaces “until exhaled vapour is proven to be not harmful to bystanders”.
