BANGKOK (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Tobacco giant Philip Morris has won a small victory in Thailand to delay plans for larger warnings on cigarette packs.

Right now warning messages take up 55 percent of Thai cigarette packages.

Phillip Morris says the regulation is illegal and "unnecessary" given that the risks of cigarette smoking "are known universally in Thailand."
