Family members cry with pride as an Iraqi Shiite Muslim
nearly finishes a crawl to the Imam Hussein mosque April 21, 2003,
in Karbala, Iraq. Millions of Shia Muslims have flocked to the holy
city of Karbala for a holiday week that commemorates the end of the
mourning period for the death of Imam Hussein. Crawling to the city,
sometimes for dozens of miles, is a way to show homage and respect
to the saint.
