Blood runs down of the back of an Afghan Shiite, after flagellating himself with knives during the Ashoura commemoration in Kabul, Afghanistan, Saturday, Nov. 24, 2012. Ashoura honors the death of Imam Hussein, a grandson of the Prophet Muhammad, in 680 A.D. Last year, the commemoration saw Afghanistan's first major sectarian attack since the fall of the Taliban regime. In that strike, a suicide bomber on foot detonated his vest amid scores of worshippers at a Shiite shrine, killing at least 80 people.(AP Photo/Musadeq Sadeq)
