In this photo taken in Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2012, a man walks past empty shops in Najaf, Iraq The plunge in Iran's currency is proving bad for business in neighboring Iraq. Fewer Iranians are now able to afford visits to Shiite holy sites here and elsewhere in Iraq because each dollar or Iraqi dinar now costs roughly three times what it did as recently as last year. That has pushed the price of organized tours up sharply and made Iraqi merchants far less willing to accept rials as payment. (AP Photo/Khalid Mohammed)
