Al-Aima bridge reopens in Baghdad

Al-Aima bridge reopens in Baghdad
Salih al-Haidari (C white head dress), the head of Iraq's Shiite Muslim religious endowments, prays with unidentified Sunni and Shiite Muslims inside the Sunni Muslim Abu Hanifa mosque in the Adhamiyah district following the reopening of the Al-Aima bridge which spans the Tigris River linking the centuries-old neighborhoods of Kadhimiyah and Adhamiyah, the former named for a revered Shiite shrine and the latter built around the tomb of a famed Sunni lawmaker, on November 11, 2008, in Baghdad. Authorities in Baghdad opened the bridge linking historic Sunni and Shiite districts that was closed in 2005 after nearly 1,000 Shiite pilgrims perished in a deadly stampede. (UPI Photo/Ali Jasim)
