Bahrain’s Wafa Yaqoop beat 19 other candidates to win the Miss Arab World 2007 title on Friday.
Yaqoop is Bahrainâ€™s first ever contestant in the event.
Candidates to the contest held in Egypt came from 16 Arab countries, including Egypt, Lebanon, Sudan, Iraq, Libya and Palestine.
The jury consisted of fashion, beauty and tourism experts as well as academies and the finalists were chosen from more than 10,000 participants who registered through internet.
The first Miss Arab World Contest was held in Egypt’s Red Sea resort of Sharm El Shaikh last year.
Good on ya Wafa! Much congratulations and onwards to better and bigger things.
