France, Iraq ink deal for Karbala airport studies

By: Ismail Zabeeh

BAGHDAD, Iraq: To accomplish studies for a future airport in the holy city of Karbala, France's firm Aeroports de Paris International signed a 28-million-euro (41-million-dollar) contract with Iraqi government this week.

Millions of pilgrims from around the world flock every year to holy Najaf, the home of the revered shrine of Imam Ali (AS) and Karbala that houses the holy shrines of Imam Hussein (AS) and Abo’l Fadhl Al-Abbas (AS).

The new airport to be named Middle Euphrates airport is expected to boost the number of pilgrims.
