Moroccan wins ' beauty pageant for veiled women ' in Egypt

The Moroccan Nisrine El Kettani won last Saturday in the final of the ' Miss Arab Veil'-election in Cairo, Egypt.

The selection of "Miss Arab Veil ' is based on criteria such as beauty, academic level, General knowledge and a chosen social project, Akhbar Alyaoum writes today. Nisrine El Kettani did arouse the attention of the jury in particular by proposing to set up an NGO to combat sexual harassment and violence among women in the MENA region.

Nisrine is the second Moroccan who this league wins since its foundation in 2014.
