Islamic State monsters have made contact with the newly-crowned Miss Iraq beauty queen, saying that they will kidnap her if she does not join the terror organisation.


But 20-year-old Shaymaa Abdelrahman, who recently won the country's first Miss Iraq beauty contest since 1972, is insisting that she will not be intimated by ISIS thugs.

She received the call anonymously, with the voice on the phone claiming to be from ISIS.

The voice said that she must join ISIS, else she will be kidnapped and harmed.

She said: "I want to prove that the Iraqi woman has her own existence in society and that she has her rights like men.

"I am afraid of nothing, because I am confident that what I am doing is not wrong.

"I’m very happy to see Iraq going forward.
