China's anti-tobacco activists urged the country's top legislators to reconsider a draft of the nation's first-ever charity law, which they said would be used by the tobacco industry for advertising and branding.

The draft is expected to be passed after a third reading.

"It's the last chance to urge changes plugging the loopholes for tobacco promotion," said Xu Guihua, a senior consultant for the Chinese Association on Tobacco Control, at a media briefing on Monday.
