It's the very essence of the beauty pageant - the swimwear round, where women line up in their skimpies with a forced smile, as a row of creeps mark them out of ten.

But at Indonesia's Miss World contest this year, the bikinis will be covered up with conservative sarongs, after protests from hardline Muslim groups, reports The Daily Telegraph.

Most of Indonesia's Muslims are moderate, but an extremist minority has become more vocal in recent years, and have focused their attentions on the Miss World Competition.

Adjie S. Soeratmadjie, one of the local organisers, said contestants will wear Bali's traditional long sarongs instead of the traditional sexy bikinis, adding that the London-based Miss World Organisation has agreed out of respect for the traditional customs and values of Indonesia.
