By: Ismail Zabeeh

HOLY CITY OF KARBALA, Iraq: At least 43 pilgrims of Al-Imam Al-Hussein (AS) have been martyred and 70 others injured when a female suicide bomber on Monday attacked them near Al-Mokhayyam Al-Husseini in the holy city of Karbala.

Al-Mokhayyam Al-Husseini, situated at adistance of about half a mile from the Imam Hussein shrine, is the place where Husseini tents were erected as Imam Al-Hussein came to Karbala on Moharram 3 in 61 AH. These tents were set on fire on Ashura after martyrdom of Imam Al-Hussein (AS) and his 72 companions at the hands of Yazidi forces.

The Monday attack took place on Habib bin Mazaher Al-Assadi thoroughfare at the time of (maghrib) evening prayer.
