36 Die, 122 Injure in Stampede at Ashura Rituals in Karbala, Iraq

Alwaght- At least 36 pilgrims lost their lives and over a hundred injured in a stampede during the Muslim religious rituals of Ashura in the Iraqi city of Karbala.

According to the Iraqi Health Ministry, 122 people sustained injuries, with Ministry spokesman Saif al-Badr saying the toll could rise further.

Ashura is the 10th day of the lunar month of Muharram and is the day when the third Shia Imam and the grandson of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), Imam Hussein (PBUH), and 72 of his companions were martyred in Karbala, in southern Iraq, in 680 AD by the army of the Umayyad caliph, Yazid I.

Ashura, which is the culmination of a 10-day annual mourning period in Muharram, is also commemorated by Shia Muslims in many countries across the world, including prominently in Iran.

Large crowds of people typically participate in the rituals at the shrine of Imam Hussein (PBUH) to commemorate his martyrdom.

Later on Tuesday, Iran offered its condolences to the Iraqi government and nation over the deadly incident.

In a statement, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi voiced Iran’s sorrows over the incident, expressed Iranians’ solidarity with the Iraqi nation, and wished a speedy recovery for the injured.
