Rally in Baghdad

In Baghdad's Sadr City, supporters of Muqtada Sadr march and strike themselves with metal chains as a sign of mourning in a memorial rally to honor the Shiite Muslim cleric's father, Mohammed Sadeq Sadr, who was killed in 1999. The cleric's movement has seen its influence wane as its Shiite rivals benefit from being in government and their ties to the U.S.
