UAE stages camel beauty contest


Ten thousand camels will be fluttering their long eyelashes in a unique international beauty pageant being held in the United Arab Emirates.

The contest in Abu Dhabi is one of the richest and biggest events of its kind, with more than $9m (£4.5m; 5.8m euros) and 100 cars in prizes up for grabs.

The contest will feature camels or "ships of the desert" from Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

Organisers hope it will remind Emiratis of traditional desert values.

As salaamu alaikum

Okay....although camels are majestic creatures.  What I wonder is how giving prizes of large sums of cash or cars reminding anyone of traditional values - desert or otherwise.

As salaamu alaikum
