HARRYZZZ VIDEO: ASHURA IN NABATYE, SOUTH LEBANON

It is Ashura today, so I visited this morning Nabatye, a shiite city in Lebanon's south. Nabatye is well known for its bloody commemoration of the death of Hussain, the grandson of the prophet Muhammad.

Strangely, this is, more or less, the only place in Lebanon where shiites cut their heads and mourn in such a bloody fashion. In Beirut, for instance, Shiites just hold parades, visit mosques and Ashura halls.

So yes - Nabatye on Saturday was bloody. I need to wash my pants and jacket because its all covered with blood stains.

Here is the video (click twice to start it):



Here are two handy links on Ashura:
