An Iranian Shiite Muslim rolls over in a mud pond early in the morning during the 'Kharrah Mali' (Mud Rubbing) ritual to mark the Ashura religious ceremony in the city of Khorramabad, some 470 kms southwest of Tehran on November 25, 2012. 'Khrreh Mali' or 'Mud Rubbing' is a ritual that is held in the city of Khorramabad every year to commemorate the seventh century slaying of Prophet Mohammed's grandson Imam Hussein, in which Iranian men roll over in mud and dry themselves by gathering around the bonfires before flagellating themselves.
