Security Tight As Shiites Gather at Shrine

Oh man...

Millions of Shiite pilgrims, some of them flogging themselves with chains, surrounded a shrine in the holy city of Karbala on Monday to commemorate the 40th and final day of symbolic mourning for the Prophet Muhammad's grandson.

Flogging themselves with chains? Don't they have any happy holidays where the children unwrap severed heads underneath a decorate pile of donkey shit or something. Man...

Tight security appeared to be holding sectarian violence at bay in the city, though five pilgrims making their way to Karbala were attacked in a drive-by shooting in Iskandariyah, 30 miles south of Baghdad. All survived, police said. In Karbala, the day passed without major reported violence.

They survived because there are no Playstations in Iraq. People haven't honed their hand-eye coordination just yet.
On Sunday, insurgents fired a mortar round into a parking lot near the shrine 50 miles south of Baghdad, but no one was hurt.

Fucking handicapped parking my ass!!
