Each year, on the tenth of Muharram, the first month in lunar calendar, Iraqi Shia Muslims, young and old, commemorate the martyrdom of Imam Hussein, the grandson of the prophet Mohammad.

Despite being potentially targeted by attacks, millions of Shia pilgrims have gathered at the holy shrines in Karbala.

Thousands of Iraqi forces have been deployed across the country to watch against the bloody attacks that have marred past pilgrimages.
