Karbala: Muslims perform mourning rituals on Arbaeen

Muslims perform mourning rituals in the central Iraqi holy city of Karbala on the day of Arbaeen.

Every year, pilgrims converge in large numbers on the holy Iraqi cities of Najaf and Karbala ahead of Arbaeen, which marks the 40th day after Ashura, commemorating the seventh-century martyrdom of Prophet Mohammad's grandson Imam Hussain.
