Shi'ite worshiper

A Shi'ite worshiper is treated by a Red Crescent worker after cutting his scalp in a ritual display of mourning during an Ashura commemoration ceremony outside Kadhimiya shrine in Baghdad, Iraq. Ashura marks the death of Prophet Muhammad's grandson the revered Imam Hussein in Karbala, Iraq in 680 AD. Shi'ite festivals were prohibited during the time of Sunni dictator Saddam Hussein's rule.
