Life Goes On In Iraq Pilgrimage To Imam Kadhim Shrine Baghdad May 2014

 
May 2014 was the date of the annual pilgrimage to the shrine of Imam Musa al-Kadhim in Baghdad’s Kadhimiya district. The event remembers his death in the 8th Century. Despite being a favorite target of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) each year, thousands of pilgrims make the trip from around Iraq and the region to the capital. These pictures by AFP’s Ahmad al-Rubaye and Sabah Arar document this event.
