By: Ismail Zabeeh

HOLY CITY OF KARBALA, Iraq: From the dawn of the first day of Moharram (27 Nov), the month in which the grandson of Prophet Muhammad (s), Al-Imam Al-Hussein (AS), was slaughtered unjustly along with his 72 near and dear ones in the scorching desert of Kerbala some 1400 years ago, mourning processions started descending in the holy compound of the Husseini shrine.

Shopping malls have raised black flags to declare state of mourning and grief marking the Ashuraiya days.

Meanwhile, Karbala police information chief told that more than 14 thousand police personnel will take part in security plan designed for protection of pilgrims of Zyarah Ashura.
