Tobacco and terrorism

In its latest series of articles, The Center for Public Integrity's International Consortium of Investigative Journalists looks at illegal cigarette trade in China, Paraguay and Ukraine. The articles show how China has emerged as the epicenter for the global cigarette counterfeiting business, while Paraguay and Ukraine have fostered billion-dollar black markets. The series also looks at how terrorist cells are turning to the illegal tobacco trade for funding.
