TEGUCIGALPA, HONDURAS (AP) - The last refuge is vanishing for besieged smokers _ at least in Honduras.

A new law says family members can call in the police on people who smoke at home.

The bans all smoking in most closed public or private spaces and orders smokers to stand at least six feet away from nonsmokers in any open space.

The law that went into effect on Monday doesn’t clearly bank smoking at home. But it expressly says relatives or visitors can summon police to deal with smokers at home.

Some analysts say the law will be almost impossible to enforce in the Central American nation, which is also a significant producer of cigars.
