HOLY CITY OF KARBALA, Iraq: The engineering and technical cadres in Al-Atabah Al-Husseiniah have fixed two new net casements made of untainted gold and silver on the site where Al-Imam Abi Abdellah Al-Hussein (AS) was unjustly slaughtered in the 61 AH in the burning desert of Karbala.

A member of the Board of Directors of the holy shrine and the supervisor of the maintenance department said in a statement that erection of the windows at the altar site came to avoid the huge crowds.

He said marble has been placed on the ground of altar and there red lamps have been illuminated. He added that hat these windows were donated by a number of pilgrims from outside Iraq.
