Shi'ite Muslims Mark Ashura Amid Ongoing Security Concerns


Shi'a across the Muslim world continued to commemorate Ashura on October 12 amid ongoing security concerns. In Afghanistan, security was tight a day after a deadly attack on a religious shrine in Kabul. Security forces in Pakistan also kept a close watch on Ashura commemorations. But the atmosphere was far less tense at events in Azerbaijan. (RFE/RL)
