MANCHESTER, ENGLAND - OCTOBER 23:  Shiite Muslim women take part in an Ashura procession on October 23, 2015 in Manchester, England. Shiites across the world mark Ashura, the tenth day of the month of Muharram, to commemorate the 7th century Battle of Karbala when Imam Hussein, a grandson of Prophet Muhammad, was killed in present-day Iraq. The Rusholme district of Manchester has a large Shite community around the famous 'Curry Mile'. Devotees show their solidarity with the martyr Hussein by beating themselves and in some cases drawing their own blood.  (Photo by Christopher Furlong/Getty Images)
