Indonesia Miss World Drama
In this Friday, Sept. 6, 2013 photo, Muslim men shout slogans as they burn the effigy of Hary Tanoesoedibjo, head of MNC media group, the local organizer of Miss World 2013, during a protest demanding the cancellation of the pageant in Jakarta, Indonesia. Beauty queens and backstage drama may seem inevitable, but at this year's Miss World competition, something more serious than hair-pulling and name-calling has come from host country Indonesia: Muslim hardliners have threatened to hijack the competition despite major concessions from the government and organizers.
