By: Ismail Zabeeh

HOLY KARBALA, Iraq: Despite a string of deadly attacks by terrorists on Husseini mourners which left more than 400 martyred, millions are flocking to the holy city of Karbala to commemorate Arabeen Al-Husseini that falls on March 10 this year.

"These acts will not stop us," said Jabar Ali, who walked for eight days with his family from the southern Iraqi city of Basra to Holy Karbala.

Waving black flags, conspicuous in their black clothing with white shrouds on their shoulders, mourners are heading to the holy city some on foot, some in vehicles, some in caravans while some others individually.
