Friday: Day in photos - Baghdad

A Shiite Muslim woman in Karbala, Iraq, kisses the glass box encasing a replica of the Askariya Shrine, or Golden Mosque. Shiites will be attending prayer services at the sacred site itself in Samarra to commemorate the death of imam Hasan Askari in the 9th century; the mosque was heavily damaged in a 2006 bomb attack.
