BEIRUT - Lebanon's beauty queen faces possible prosecution for being photographed with Miss Israel when she arrived in South Africa for the Miss World contest, AFP reports. Newspapers yesterday splashed the photograph of Ghada Turc, a 22-year-old brunette, and Tamara Porat, a fair-haired Israeli, smiling side by side. The Tourism Minister, Nicolas Fattuche, threatened legal action against Ms Turc and her sponsors 'for breaching the laws on the boycott of Israel'.
