Miss Iraq gets in hot water over selfie with Miss Israel (KTRK)

Miss Iraq, a contestant in last month's Miss Universe pageant, says she's been getting death threats since posting a selfie with Miss Israel.

Sarah Idan took a picture with Miss Israel and posted on Instagram, along with the words "Peace and love from Miss Iraq and Miss Israel." Iraq and Israel do not have any formal diplomatic relations, and the reaction to the post was immediate.

Idan says she has faced international backlash and death threats and that it's been so bad her family had to leave Iraq.
