The organizers arranged for the processions to take place with physical distancing, made face masks mandatory, checked mourners’ body temperature and had them use hand sanitizers in an attempt to keep the gathering safe. Every year, millions of believers and followers of Shiite Islam flock to mosques for the ritual but this year the virus pandemic has scaled it down. AP Photo: Vahid Salemi)
