By: Ismail Zabeeh

BAGHDAD, Iraq: An estimated 5 million pilgrims flocked on Rajab 25, June 28 Tuesday to the holy shrine of Al-Imamayn Al-jawwadayn (AS) in Kadhimiyah to observe the martyrdom anniversary of Al-Imam Mussa Al-Kadhim (AS) snarling traffic and sending security forces to the streets to protect the worshippers.

Iraqi spiritual leader, clerics and security officials hailed troops' work as a huge success.

Baghdad's top military spokesman, Maj. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi, praised the security forces and said that they foiled terror plots. He did not give any details.

Police used concrete blocks and razor wire to close roads across the capital to safeguard the pilgrims. Al-Moussawi said the security precautions began early last week.

Tents were set up to provide shelter, food and water along the pilgrimage.
