Dozens dead in Iraq's Karbala city as Ashoura marked

In Iraq, at least 31 pilgrims have been killed at one of the most sacred sites in Shia Islam during Ashoura, which marks the death of the Prophet Muhammad’s grandson.
Millions of pilgrims had gathered in Karbala but a stampede occurred during the ritual run towards the shrine.
The government fears the number of dead could rise but has promised better conditions for the event.
Al Jazeera's Charles Stratford reports from Karbala.

    Why saying "Imam Hussein was killed here over 1300 years ago " and leave it like that? How u say it you show a wrong picture of the tragedy which plays role for the entire world. Imam Hussein martyred in Kerbella and from his story and actions every human being can learn..

    Intention is key , What the Shia's are doing goes against the Quran and sunnah. Yes it is a day of mourning but nowhere does it say do harm to yourself and others ,as anything that causes harm is Haram e.g smoking,drugs, alcohol

      @Emmanuel Itopa Yes my friend even that is because it is suicide and with the intent to murder. In the Quran, it says that one should never harm themself. It also says that whoever kills one person is as if they killed all of humanity, and whoever saves one person is as if they saved all of humanity!
