Iraqi Mandaeans Celebrate Religious Holiday In Kurdistan


Members of Iraq's Mandaean minority, who practice a distinct and ancient monotheistic religion, this week observed one of their holiest rituals, known as the Golden Baptism. The celebration took place in the Kurdistan region, where many Mandaeans from southern Iraq have sought refuge from violence and religious persecution.
