An Iraqi Shi'ite man carries his nine-month-old baby son Husein Ali, with
his forehead covered in blood, as hundreds of thousands of Iraqi's march in
the center of Karbala April 23, 2003. For the first time in more than a
quarter of a century, Iraq's majority Shi'te Muslims - long oppressed by the
now-ousted president - were celebrating openly in huge numbers one of the
most sacred events of their calendar. The pilgrimage to the holy city of
Kerbala, commemorates the 40th day - the end of the traditional mourning
period - after the death in 680 AD of Imam Hussein, grandson of the Prophet
Mohammad and one of the first Shi'ite leaders. Pictures of the month April

IRAQI SHI'ITES WALK ON FIRST PILGRIMMAGE TO KERBALA IN 35 YEARS.
Iraqi Shi'ites in the Iraqi town of Taleya participate in the pilgrimmage of
hundreds of miles to the sacred city of Kerbala, April 17, 2003, for the
first time in 35 years. The ousting of Saddam Hussein's government by
U.S.-led forces has opened the way for the pilgrimage, one of the holiest
events in the Shi'ite calendar, to be held again on April 23 after being
banned for quarter of a century. Imam Hussein, the son-in-law of the Prophet
Mohammad, was killed in a battle in Kerbala, 75 km (50 miles) south of
Baghdad, and the pilgrimage - Arbaiin - marks the 40th day after his death.
