BAGHDAD (AP) — Hundreds of thousands of Shi'ite Muslims clambered aboard buses or began trekking homeward yesterday at the end of Ashoura, a 10-day ritual to cleanse the spirit and scourge the body in honor of their founding saint.
But in Karbala, provincial Gov. Aqil al-Khazali said 2 million Ashoura pilgrims passed peacefully through the city, home to the golden-domed mosques of Imam Hussein and his half-brother, Imam Abbas.
