Men beat their chests during pilgrimage to Karbala

Creative #: 82739973
KARBALA, IRAQ - 2003: Pilgrims beat their chest in sign of remorse and shame because the Shiite Muslims did not save Hussein from his death in 680AD. Following the fall of Saddam Hussein's regime, an estimated 2 million Shiites Muslims marched to the Holy City of Karbala in Iraq on Tuesday April, 23. Exercising their new-found religious freedom they mourned the death of Imam Hussein, a grandson of the Prophet Muhammad, in a pilgrimage banned by Saddam Hussein's regime since 1977.
