Arbaïn, un pèlerinage sous tension à Karbala

Abstract : Millions of Shiites set out on the roads leading to Karbala for the Arbain pilgrimage, which this year is on October 19. Today, as in the past, it is an issue for the Iraqi authorities, especially at a time when popular demonstrations are shaking the country. An expression of popular piety that the religious and civil authorities are trying to control, it is also a sounding board for the social and political tensions that run through Iraq and its region.
