Mourning ceremonies held as Iranians mark Muharram

It’s Muharram, that month of the year on the Islamic lunar calendar when Shia Muslims mourn the martyrdom of Imam Hossein (PBUH), the third Shia Imam, and his companions in 680.

Mourning sessions were observed on the third night of the month at Shah Abdol-Azim Shrine in Rey, to the south of the Iranian capital of Tehran, on Saturday.

Here are photos from that solemn event, one of many across Iran and other countries to mourn the third Shia Imam and the Grandson of Prophet Muhammad.
