SHAFAQNA- An Italian catholic woman feels proud to be a member of a millions-strong crowd of people who march toward the holy city of Karbala, Iraq, for Arbaeen.

Arbaeen comes 40 days after Ashura, the martyrdom anniversary of the third Shia Imam, Imam Hussein (AS).

Each year, a huge crowd of Shias flock to Karbala, where the holy shrine of Imam Hussein (AS) is located, to perform mourning rites.

In the past few years, around 20 million pilgrims from all over the world took part in the mourning ceremonies in the Iraqi holy city marking Arbaeen, Iqna reported.

Arbaeen falls on Tuesday, October 30, this year.
