ASHURA IN IRAN
 
ASHURA IN IRAN
Ghazaleh, an Iranian Shiite, lights candles to mourn the death of Imam Hossein, the grandson of Islam's prophet Mohammed, as they take part in ceremony to mark sham-e-Ghariban the night of the martyrdom of Imam Hossein and his family in Ahl ebn-e-Ali holy shrine in Tehran, Iran February 09, 2006. Ashura is the peak of ten days of mourning during the Islamic month of Muharram, the first month of the lunar calendar, when Shiite Muslims mourn the slaughter of Imam Hussein 1365 years ago in what is now Karbala in southern Iraq.
