IRAN ASHURA
 
IRAN ASHURA
Iranians flagellate themselves with their hands to mourn the death of Imam Hussein, the grandson of Islam's prophet Mohammed, as they take part in ceremony to mark Ashura in Tehran, on January 30, 2007. 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.
