This is just a Tip to help raise awareness.

Received information today regarding a Bangladeshi operated store in
Malakal selling individual sticks of cigarettes for 50 cents. We asked
that the individual provide an evidence, so a Picture is attached to
this message. As you are well aware, it is illegal to sell sticks of
cigarettes, but that does not deter such sellers from continually
breaking the law.

Time: 1:40
Date: 8/9/17
Location: LM Malakal Store In Malakal Next to Kings
