But organisers of the competition said she was 'not behaving like a role model' and took her crown away for breach of contract.

A Sudanese diplomat groped a woman at an East Village bar then tried to run from police — but cops ultimately had to cut him loose because of his diplomatic status, officials said Monday.

10. Imam in Australia condemns Muslim parents who let children listen to music
An Islamic preacher from western Sydney has slammed Muslim parents for playing music to their children on the way to the mosque and allowing them to dance at home.
Sunni fundamentalist morals campaigner Nassim Abdi said it was wrong for parents to have the radio on as they drove to and from the mosque.
'We have children who are drowning in the listening of music, day and night, to the extent where we have parents taking their children to learn the book of Allah, learning the Koran ... but on the way there, and on the way back, the children are in the car listening to music,' he said.
