“A young Iraq model was simply enjoying & loving life like other pretty girls. Unfortunately, she got shot & killed by few militants. I am truly heart-broken & saddened by such a tragic news,” one tweeted.

“This Thursday it was Tara… Next Thursday, who will it be?” a another tweeted.

Ahmad al-Basheer, an Iraqi humorist who lives in exile in Jordan after death threats, denounced the murder of Fares, who was situated in Iraqi Kurdistan and once in a while made a trip to her local Baghdad.

“Anyone who finds excuses for those who kill a girl just because she had decided to live like most other girls on the planet is an accomplice to her murder,” he wrote.
