SEOUL (Reuters) – South Korea’s top convenience store chain GS25 has stopped selling flavoured liquid e-cigarettes, the parent company GS Retail <007070.KS> said on Thursday.

The sales suspension came a day after the country’s health minister warned the public to stop using liquid vaping products, citing a number of deaths attributed to e-cigarettes in the United States.
