A new national weekly newspaper for British Asians has withdrawn a poster campaign promoting its launch after being told it could break advertising rules.

The poster promoting East to be launched next Tuesday, shows an Asian youth kicking a white man who sprayed graffiti on a wall. The Advertising Standards Authority told the poster company Mills and Allen that the campaign could breach clauses related to racial matters as well as potentially encouraging violence.
