Beauty contests Zanzi-barred

Beauty contests have been banned in Tanzania's semi-autonomous island of Zanzibar, where more than 95 per cent of the population is Muslim - they are irrelevant because "all Zanzibaris are beautiful".

"All women here are very beautiful ... there is no doubt about that fact," said Zanzibar's Education and Culture Minister, Haroun Ali Suleiman.

That is the feel good story of the week.
