According to Karbala governor till-to-date some 100 thousand mourners from other countries have reached in this holy city.
From inside Iraq, some coming on foot holding black, green and red Alam (standards) and chanting ‘wa Husseiniaa’, some individually while some others in caravans reach in Karbala.

Showing their great love and rich devotion for the grandson of Prophet Muhammad (S), many mourners go to the shrine by crawling.
