APTOPIX Afghanistan Ashoura
An Afghan Shiite flagellates himself with knives during the Ashoura commemoration in Kabul, Afghanistan, Saturday, Nov. 24, 2012. Ashoura honors the death of Imam Hussein, a grandson of the Prophet Muhammad, in 680 A.D. Last year, the commemoration saw Afghanistan's first major sectarian attack since the fall of the Taliban regime. In that strike, a suicide bomber on foot detonated his vest amid scores of worshippers at a Shiite shrine, killing at least 80 people.(AP Photo/Musadeq Sadeq)
