An Iraqi Shi'ite Muslim man gashes his forehead with a sword before the religious festival of Ashura...
An Iraqi Shi'ite Muslim man gashes his forehead with a sword before the religious festival of Ashura in Najaf, 160km (100 miles) south of Baghdad, November 11, 2013. Iraqi forces tightened security in and around the holy Shi'ite city of Kerbala on Tuesday ahead of Ashura on Thursday. Kerbala expects around a million pilgrims to converge on the city, south of Baghdad, for the culmination of Ashura on Thursday, when Shiite Muslims commemorate the slaying of the prophet Mohammad's grandson Hussein in Kerbala in 680 AD. Ashura, the most important day in the Shi'ite calendar, has become a show of strength for a majority whose public worship was repressed by Saddam Hussein. Picture taken November 11, 2013.
